Below are shots of a large part of the back yard showing progress during the month of June, most recent at the top so you don’t have to wait.

You may recall, we had to eliminate a giant weed forest which of course I didn’t get photos of. And now we have a veggie garden with Buddha surrounded by flowers. Click on the photos to enlarge.

At last, Buddha has a new home overlooking the veggie garden, the vegetables are fenced off from the rabbits, and my bean trellises are stained red with a fadable stain that should soften with age.

Still need to paint the corner trim on the garage white, install the rain barrel on the same corner and work on the shady nook to the right that I'll call my Shady Rest.

Vegetable garden is planted, mostly.

Close up of Buddha with red trellises. I may have to tone down the red a bit.

Now, if only everything would just grow faster! I can’t wait for my scarlet runner beans to climb the trellises.
