My additions this year have been to add stepping stones so I can get from the car to the patio mats without stepping in the dirt and mud.
Then I decided to remove the remainder of the weeds sprouting up, putting down some weed barrier and topping it off with bark mulch. Now the garden appears much larger.
I put in some ground covers around the stepping stones as well as some moss roses for color until things thicken up.
The birdbath got moved to center stage so we can watch the birds (and squirrels) enjoy this little water feature. The duck was a gift from my friend Colleen and makes it complete.
The bird rusty bird is an art piece I had given to my daughter. It is residing in my garden while they work on selling their house. He's off to the left side of the photo below, but is hard to see. Hmmm, I wonder what he'd look like bright red as well?
It looked too big and awkward to easily store and move, so it will wait until it has a new garden to fly to. He does look rather nice here, so I'll have to look for another art piece in the future to take his place.
The little artsy thing with the leaves gets kind of lost, so I plan to paint it bright red to add a little color pop. I may move it over so the white fifth wheel behind us can provide more of a backdrop.
Long Live the Queen of Garden Fun
