Dragon fly in my back yard, August 2008

I just wanted to post a few photos of some of the loveiness that is in my yard. Because the yard and gardens are such a mess this year, it’s hard to see these things unless you stand still and stare for a few minutes. So I decided to document them to remind me of what the garden could look like if I got on the ball and finished moving all my plants and stuff around. 

 

A Pat Austin rose that I rescued from a neighbor. Kind of a fussy little bush, but worth the effort.

Note that I’m not posting any photos of the mess. That’s a work in progress that I don’t need to share with anyone but my sweetheart who is helping me with it all. With regards to the mess, the work I did for Burning Man this year prompted me to do two things: 1) build a temporary carport-style shed until I can build a real one; and 2) leave a patch of grass in the back yard. The significance of these two items is that I realized I need some space to work. Some work space must be in a cleanish, dryish location, and the other work space needs to be big enough to actually assemble large objects. 

Anyway, on to the pretty things…
