I took a moment recently to take of pictures of blooms around the old house in West Linn. I try to stop and remember to take pictures in the midst of scraping old paint and wall paper off of the interior walls. I love to look around and imagine what new flower beds I'll create and what new edible plants I'll incorporate into the backyard.
|Enjoy your life now bell flowers...(insert evil laugh) you will be cleaned out this summer!|
|Star Magnolia. Next year I hope to better capture it's blooms.|
|Loads of Daffodils that will be dug up this summer and moved to new locations around the property|
|Soon to bloom pear blossoms on the combo pear tree I planted|
|Old trees gone, Aaron out on the riding mower to attempt to cut the rather long grass|
Currently I have added these edibles to the back yard:
Combo Dwarf Apple Tree
Combo Dwarf Pear Tree
4 Blue Berries with plans to add 2 more bushes.
All of my raspberry canes from Rainier house to the rows of existing raspberries in West Linn.
If I could just spend all of my time working on the yard and build my gardens I'd be such a happy clam, but drat, we do have to live 'in' the house so I suppose it is reasonable to make that the priority.
