These are the 3 dwarf fruit trees we planted last winter. They've made a lot of growth during the year. There's a nectarine an apricot and a peach. The green box is a guard to keep Kevin off the hyacinth bulbs I planted out there after they finished flowering last spring. There's also a little (brown) fibreglass pond for the birds that Kevin keeps dragging around :yes3

This is nice and Kevin sits there as the owner of the place.

Yes, Kevin is Lord of the garden and yes, I hope our mini fruit grove will be interesting.

July now and the leaves are nearly all gone from the trees.
And...the "hyacinth" bulbs are now grown taller and are obviously *not* hyacinths! Looking more like daffodils. Time will tell (if Kevin allows them to flower!):yes3

A change yes, but the grass is still green. Just lovely.

Thanks ladies. The cool seasons are when our grass is greenest, although there's at least as much burr clover and other weeds as grass :(
In summer we tend to let it dry out because water has become terribly expensive.

ahhhhh... Kevin on guard! Love seeing the changes, Anne.

Our "grass" here is a combination of clover, crab grass, dandelions, and bermuda grass with other weeds and such mixed in. I don't mind the clover and dandelions (I'm the odd one around I think, but the bermuda grass I just do NOT like at all. I mean.. it's fine if that's ALL you EVER want to plant in the yard. But if you wand a flower garden or any type of garden it's just a waste of time, the bermuda just takes over. grrrrrrrrrrrrrr LOL

Denny used to water the grass in the summers but we don't any more. It comes back just fine. Even two years ago when we didn't get ANY rain from the first of May to the first of October and temps in the 110s upward most of the summer. It crunched but we didn't water and it all came back safe and sound. The Crepe Myrtle didn't bloom at all during the summer but it did bloom a little after it started raining again. THIS summer we haven't had to worry about watering a whole lot. LOL

You're right, watering the grass just gets way too expensive!

and then it grows and then you have to mow it... and so the cycle continues. Not at our place or yours, any longer :)

August. Leaves all gone - but not Kevin LOL. Unfortunately, despite the plastic bottles I put to protect the daffodils, he still destroyed their flower buds as soon as they showed colour. My other daffs are in a big bowl which is now up high, out of his reach! :yes3

He also likes the flowers of geraniums, lavender and pretty much anything else that's in reach. Luckily he doesn't go in the front garden where most of our pretty things grow. The back yard is mostly container gardening. He even pulls weeds out of the lawn - occasionally! :T-up3

Flowers! Flowers!! Lovely they are!

I think Kevin was busy hanging out the clothes.

And someday... maybe... I will have a clothes line again. I miss having one. I'm also lazy and have not had the gumption of putting one up. LOL
