June Overhead

I like to take overhead pictures of my garden to get a sense of the over-all layout of the garden. Sometimes looking at the garden from above is the only way to see patterns that are there or should be there, problem areas and what to do about them, and generally how everything looks at once. I see barespots that need to be filled and a tree that needs to be replaced, but I am mostly happy with what I am seeing. Although it doesn't look as neat and trim as it did last year, I like the more casual, cottagey look.

Here's a nice clear picture with the garden hose. Oops!

And here is a not so clear picture without the garden hose.

I LOVE your overhead shots. Is this your front yard or backyard? Either way, it's lovely.

OldRoses, THANKS! This is actually my backyard. I also have gardens in my side yard along this same street and gardens in the front yard along the other street (I'm on a corner).

Snappy, thanks! This garden takes up about 1/3 of my back yard. It was once all grass - can you imagine? I prefer to take care of a garden than to mow.
