Well, for an update on my garden, which is mostly perennial, my green beans didn't do well, nor my strawberries. I now know I will have to build a foot deep enclosure for any successful veggie growing venture in the future. I tasted one strawberry and it was tasteless and watery.
My wildflower and butterfly garden didn't take off, I guess I spread the seeds in too shady of an area.
But my herbs did well and I have been enjoying fresh Italian Parsley on everything...what a difference when fresh herbs are added to foods.
I did paint some clay pots and that added a nice spash of colour and interest, as well as hubby and I purchased a dragonfly with stained-glass wings, and so I nailed it to my Elderberry tree.
