My garden, what there is of it

My garden was nothing to brag about this year, due to a number of factors. First was the terrible economy, which left me with very little money to spend on plants (and my record of success in growing things from seed is abysmal). Second was that I got a very late start, as I had to wait for the places that sell plants to mark everything down to half price. Third was a combination of uncooperative weather (including several hailstorms) and frequent neglect on the part of the gardener (i.e. me). Let’s just say it wasn’t one of those summers that I would have wanted my yard to be on the Garden Tour. Still, there are some places in it that are quite pretty… so I had my teenage daughter go out this afternoon and take some close-up shots of the parts that are actually worth looking at.
