I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

Side Yard - Fall 2012

Linking Up Today with Fertilzer Friday
Be sure and check out all the other great gardeners and walk through their gardens....
Wow I can't hardly believe it is September - so ready for the cooler temp's, but I feel like I missed a lot of summer because it was so hot.  All I did was move water from here to there and dash back into the house!  It is lovely now at our home in Idaho and I want to be outside everyday until the snow falls.

Here are some pictures of our side yard.  It is the place featured on my header.   Things have grown a lot since I took that picture.   Here it is looking at it from the patio side.  (The boards are to protect it from little people under 3 feet playing in the back yard.!)

Do you see the far end of this side? 
I have tried to grow several things here -  ground covers, plants etc and nothing will thrive. 
I have made an executive decision - I am going to cover it in bark chips and add a hammock to this area.  There is a pine tree that grows on the other side of the fence and I think it takes all the umph the ground has and the plants just don't flourish. 
I hope to get this done this fall and will post pix when that project is complete.

 The pots all have flowers in them I grew from seed - I was so excited that I was actually able to do it!
This is the view from the bottom of the side yard peeking over the fence to the play yard area.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Today I am grateful for Fall!
 I LOVE FALL!  It is one of the reasons I love living here!

You're definitely blessed with green thumb! I want to congratulate you for your enormous effort in maintaining these plants. I know its not easy, the most difficult part of course is cutting grasses or lawns,however, its not your concern because you placed your plants in pots. Do you have other concerns when it comes to making your garden look great?
