I thought I'd share a few photos of my garden. These were taken last summer -- it still hasn't been warm enough here for most of my flowers to bloom. This past Saturday, I was finally able to go outside and get some weeding done; long overdue, but with lots of rain and cold weather (try 4 deg. Celsius!) I wasn't going in the garden. Anyway, Saturday it was done. I even paid two of the younger kids to help me -- they weeded what was poking up among the stones in the walkway.
My garden is mostly filled with perennials. I don't have that much time to spend putting in annuals. I like perennials as they spread with very little effort on my part.
Along the side of the house, there is a lilac bush (that never seems to bloom), 2 rose bushes, a snowball bush, a gooseberry bush and also black currant. We also have lots of raspberry bushes that yield a great crop each year!
Daisies are my absolute favorite wildflower! I just think they look great!
