|Nasturtiums grown from seed decorate our sunny deck.|
|Sit a spell. (See close-ups below of the climbing vines.)|
The 'thank you' part is a little bit of a blessing and way more of a curse...
|Clematis climbing vines smile at you from one corner of the deck's privacy screen.|
|At least 100 honeysuckle blossoms pretty up the other half of the privacy screen.|
I do love the fact that they're so appreciative of my efforts. Calling out: Beautiful flowers! So pretty! as they peddle by.
|This used to be the weedy ditch in front of my house.|
Over the last 2 years, I slowly, methodically, killed off the crabgrass and dandelions covering the steep ditch in front of my house. Then I filled it with tough as nails waterwise perennials that happily wave in the breeze.
PS: Welcome back from the Seattle Fling, garden blogging buddies! I pouted all weekend because I couldn't join you...
