The Garden

I have to share my front yard. After 8 years of living in a cookie cutter house (first time homeowners) I feel my gardens are finally coming to life! I never grew a garden before and the knowledge I did have was from growing up in New York. We don't have dirt here in South Carolina, it's red clay. It's taken almost 8 years of mulching to get some 'good' growing soil! I wish I had gotten a picture of my southern version of a lilac because it was the first year I had buds after 6 painful years :(

I haven't gotten to our back down by the fence mainly cause it's huge and the dogs have a track back there from running back and forth. We have a horse farm backing up to us. It's nice to have them come visit for an apple or carrot. Drives the dogs batty!
