I really can't take credit for any of it. The guy we bought our home from, loved yard work. Me, not so much. I do love how it looks after we've worked really really hard outside though, which is what we did all day Saturday. I have the sunburn to prove it.
As you can see our fence needs to be painted REALLY bad.
Those trees on the other side of the fence that needs to be painted are Russian Olive trees. They're a pain in the rear. All the white stuff all over the flower beds, is the blossoms from that tree. And then in the fall we get to clean up all the leaves from the tree. Lucky us, there is even a Chinese Elm right next to it, that blows seeds all over, and then grow cute little trees all over our yard. I think both of those trees are even illegal to plant, they're nasty little (big actually) weeds.
Well there ya have it. My flower garden. If you know what any of these plants are called, let me know.
