So a long time ago, I promised pictures. I still don't have any of the house - it's hard sending them individually with a phone camera - but I do have the garden, and given that's where I spend 90% of my time when I can anyway...



So the garden was a mess when I got it.

This was what Bed 1 looked like before:

But I worked on it and finally got it cleaned up:


Newly weeded and bare flower bed.

Did my planting and watering, and this is what it looks like now:


Picture of garden bed with blooming plants.

From left to right, I have: cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, spearmint, grapes, violets, and green onions. In the front, there's some strawberries, more tomatoes, and a rose plant.


The other bed was also a mess:




So I cleaned it up and got some patio furniture:

And, of course, I planted a pallet garden.

On the first week, it looked like this:


Pallet garden with freshly planted flowers.

A couple weeks go by...




And today it looks like this:




First row, starting from the top left: Bee balm, peppermint, petunias, sweet mint.
Second row: Marjoram, oregano, basil.
Third row: Calibrachoa, lemon thyme, petunia.
Fourth row: German thyme, parsley, sage.

On the top, not visible yet, is English ivy, lavender, and rosemary.


And because this is me, I had to have more flowers, so I added a few hanging baskets:




and planted some roses in my front yard:


Blooming pink roses.

And that's it! You now know what I've been doing the past few weeks. Hope it was worth it!
