here's an update on the frontyard garden. I was glad the parsley overwintered really well, and came up very early on in spring. The flat leaf Italian parsley and alliums (green onions, and the chives... and even the garlic) did well coming back on their own.
So here are a few photos updating how the front looks.
Alpine Strawberry looks pretty happy...
Diamond shaped boxes with green onions on the border, and the beginnings of basil, and dwarf Hestia Scarlet Runner Bean
The red salvias, the kids and I love to suck out that 1 droplet of nectar that is at the bottom of that long red flower...(sorry hummingbirds!)
Basil is planted in the box. Dwarf Hestia scarlet runner bean was planted in the shape of a diamond, and generously - but as nature usually does, it's not doing what I want it to do!!! AAAAAARGHHhhhhhhhh
I took these rocks from my dad's house, and I've always like the look of stacked rocks.
They remind me of my grandmother in korea who passed away a couple of years ago. We visited a few places that had stacked rocks in Korea. I want to say they were mostly temples, but it happens whenever you find places with many rocks: rivers, canyons, mountains...my front yard... LOL
