A 2020 Calendar
|JANUARY - A spur of the moment project last winter was a twig fence that I made along the back border of the garden. It has held up well and I'm still adding twigs when I can get them. There is a small area on the west side that could use more. I would like to go back and refine it but for now, it serves the purpose of screening the houses behind us and the birds love it.|
|FEBRUARY - I did not have many photos to choose from for February. I decided to include this because it shows the area that I am working on at the moment. I'm putting in a low retaining wall along the border to the right. And the grass path is being narrowed.|MARCH - On March 14th, we got a few inches of snow.
|AUGUST - Looking out the window at the courtyard|
|OCTOBER - The most pleasant surprise this year was the Spanish Flag vine (Ipomoea lobata). I grew it from seed and I'm notoriously bad at that. The blooms on this vine were just incredible.|
|DECEMBER - Osmanthus 'Goshiki' shows the promise of a new and better year.|
