In the side garden we have beans coming up and getting ready to start climbing the tower. In the corners of the bed I planted Fennel, for any swallowtail butterflies that might want to lay eggs :-)
I love the view looking across the back of the garden from east to west. I sort of wish this was the view we got from the house/patio, but perhaps it's just the fact that I don't see it on a daily basis that makes it special.
Here's a view from the front of the island beds.
In the back border, under the Southern Wax Myrtle, the white veined pipevine, is growing nicely and I hope ready to host some Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars this year.
That's all from me today -- I'm getting ready to fly to London this evening to visit my parents for a week. I hope you all have a good week.
