Every plant tells a story
My father in law was famous for the strawberries he grew so this little garden combines some strawberries with chives given to me by a good friend and a bit heritage lettuce to round out the theme and add to lunch.
As you can see many of my plants have little scenes in them, First they're just there for fun and the added benefit is that having enough things in the way seems to keep the animals from digging up my plants.
The trees tell a story too. These are at least 70 years old and leave a good part of the front yard in shade all of the time. Cool and comfy but a real challenge got trying to grow a garden here. We have no idea how tall they are and no one who's been here can figure it out either.
