There's also a longer term project that will happen in the area with the cherry tree, which is pretty dark at this time of the year, that's the north side of the house. I'm planning a gravel garden with a dry stream bed and some agaves and optunias. I'm laying out the plans right now! There's no irrigation back there, so whatever I plant will have to live off the rain and my neighbor's lawn overspray.
Tomorrow I'm going for a hike - so I'll have some pictures of something other than my garden!
