Just a few pictures of the back yard pond area from the last summer. I can't believe how much the apple tree has grown since this was taken. It's a 5 way grafted semi-dwarf tree. After several years of kids playing around it, all the tags have come off the branches and we no longer know what's what. I'm a little frustrated with myself for not keeping better track. Now we just take guesses on what type it might be. I've since moved the lilies because they got so tall you couldn't get around the tree, not to mention the dog and kids stepping on them. I'm a chronic plant rearranger and am always digging and moving things around. I keep reminding myself some plants will never have a chance to mature if I keep doing this!
I've never been really happy with the waterfall. I've tried fixing it every year and just can't get it right. I think it will involve some major reconstruction, and that's something my husband may not be willing to do this year. I already have several projects lined up!
Anyway it sure is fun to go back and see how my yard will look when it's gets sunny again, can't wait. It's just how many months til then?
