Pictures - it's been a while

I tried to put these in good order...These are some shots of our backyard - right now with lots of straw instead of grass thanks to the heatwave, lack of rain and watering restrictions! This may give you some perspective of the gardens. Our lot is about 50 feet wide by 100 feet deep. I'm not sure how deep the backyard is. The house sits 23 feet back from the road. I think we have something like 35 or 40 feet in the backyard - the house is small. Anyway, we have gardens all along the fence and on the side of the garage. We also have a garden alongside the house by the driveway and some on the other side of the driveway. Then there are hydrangea and azaleas in front of the house and some lavender and forsythia on the far side of the house. Also in the pictures - some of my vegetables! And Boomer is in at least one of the shots!

A bloom on one of the hydrangeas in front. It's such a delicate china blue!
A pepper - that is supposed to be red. Maybe it turns later?
A rose - from the garden on the side of the driveway. It just popped this morning.

Great pictures Kate! Sorry about the grass - mine is starting to look like that now too.

It's a lovely yard, and even with the scorching you still have less weeds than we do!
