Here is where the basil is planted in the newly fenced garden area.
There are nasturtiums planted along the base of the concrete wall. They too, have pushed up to the surface. The tomato has some pretty good size tomatoes already. Maybe another month. Basil with fresh tomatoes.
For now, the gravel path takes up quite a bit of space. I layed down some weed barrier under the gravel, I will just roll it back when I want to expand a bit.
Couple of bean plants a along fence with more nasturtiums underneath.
Found the door plate in the ground. Doesn't close the door extremely tight, but enough to keep Bambi out.
Maybe some Swallow boxes on the top of the poles next year and a hanging basket or two on the posts above the door.
Planted a bit of screenage at the top of the driveway.
Certainly enjoying the driveway border. The native Rhodies have added to the color. What you can't tell is the height of this one from the picture. Probably close to 25 feet. It stretched out from it's place in the woods when there was more underbrush. The bull dozing exposed it and it has started to leaf out more. Couple more years and lots of the bare branches might have more leaves.
The self seeded Bachelor Buttons and Poppies ran down the driveway gravel in the rain this last winter and seeded here and there.
Shasta Daisies are almost in bloom. Hopefully, I will continue to add things in the years to come. Definitely need more blue buttons.
Also had Egrets visiting again. I counted 50 Egrets, 5 Grey Herons and a flock of diving Cormorants, maybe 15 or so of them. They spread out and then regrouped. Must be something delicious to bring them in such numbers.
