house, life gardens in may. May 9, 2013 / This will be zinnias along the garage and red raspberries along the path. hurrah! The peas are reachin’ Hopefully this honeysuckle will keep our porch nice and shaded from the late afternoon sun. And just for a fun reference, here is what our backyard looked like the first year we lived here. Yikes. Under those weeds was a nice layer of gravel. I’d say we’ve made some progress.
