Storm Season and the Garden

This seasons storms are very hard on me since the pressure issue in January with the airplane flight. Everytime we have a storm coming in, I am getting a migraine and today was the worst so far. It's completely debilitating me lately and making me very angry that I have lost a day of creativity! lol  I hope you are doing well- the good news is that I will live after all!

Since my set aside creative day was spent in bed, I will share some garden photos with you -  its coming along but I see tracks from deer, snake holes and lots of places where the squirrels are digging- grrrrrrr  one day I will have a 10 ft deer fence! for now I have hooked up my scarecrow sensor sprinkler - it really does work well!

The first 2 photos are from my porch this evening- love my 4th of July Americana decorations!

The Empty metal tubs are a planter in the works- this should keep my dog from digging back there don't you think? Remember, you can click on the photos to see them full size- the area "behind" the herb garden is all planted to JUST FLOWERS and they are coming up from seed! woop woop

the hosta island in my yard (my mowed weeds- worst grass crop I have ever had due to the oak trees)  The purple clematis on my arch is goreous and my herb garden and planter boxes are drowned from all the rain- some plants are even waterlogged/droopy  *insert sad face*

May 28 2013Garden 014  This concrete block box has corn and gourds planted in it- the gourds will crawl up the corn plants and help keep the deer and squirrels away because they dont like the spiney gourd plants-  
This is a path between the garden on the left and the trees on the right, its a project that never stops but I love it!  our plan next year is pea gravel on the paths and between the beds we are tired of replacing bark every 2 years! lol

  The sedum in the wheel barrow are not looking happy its full of ANTS- dratted things we are having so much trouble with them-  I have to take it all out later this week and put in new soil and plants- sigh.  I NEVER had this much bug and critter trouble in my past gardening life !!!
