Yes, I'm a little obsessed with the backyard right now. I continue to be so surprised at how deeply impactful I"m finding the changes. I remember when we took this picture, so very happy with how the garden itself had taken shape. Looking at it, I can see how much my mock orange has grown (in the corner, with the white flowers) and I realize I artemisia has not come up this year! And Suzie, remember when we took out that big raspberry bush? I miss the raspberries but am loving the peonies that are there instead. One thing gardening is really teaching me is that sometimes it takes a long time to grow.
