When we first bought our home about ten years ago there were only two trees in the backyard. We have slowly transformed our yard into garden rooms. We have sixty-five lavender plants in the front and back yard. We only plant perennials although I do break down and buy a few annuals each year for some added color. I truly love gardening. I love the outdoors and marvel everyday at our beautiful earth. Some of our garden favorites are shown. The Fourth of July Rose is truly spectacular.
