Landscaping – always a continuing process

Landscaping_wm

We have been doing some landscaping over the past years.  Just beyond our fence is the bicycle/walking/jogging track developed and laid by our Park District.  My wife, Jean, with the help of one of our daughter’s, Stephanie, get all the credit here. The work in progress,  the upper left of the image, is a Trumpet Vine.  The large trellis has yet to be fastened to the fence.  It’s attached to a smaller trellis with green garden tape/velcro at this point.

Butterflies on Cone Plants

We have seen a large, daily gathering of these beautiful Butterflies on our Cone Plants this year … Bumblebees also … there’s one on the top left-center plant.  I’ll get a good image of a Butterfly later. Anyway, if you enlarge the image you’ll get a better viewing.

Backyard in early Spring 2015

image

I shot this image of our backyard a few days ago.  Everything is greening up and/or blooming.  The Lilac Bush on the left and the Flowering Crab on the right will soon lose all of their flowers and be leafy green until the fall.  Over the years the high voltage poles in the background have rusted somewhat which adds an earthy color (if you will) to the shot. That is a bed of Creeping Phlox in the foreground.
