With 7" of rain in the past 10 days, the back gardens and lawns are squishy, to say the least.
For the past year I've concentrated on those back/bee beds and have given the front of the house very short shrift. So it was a little surprising when I actually looked out the front door of the breezeway this morning and saw what effect all this warm wet weather has had on my hostas, astilbes, hydrangeas, sedums, ferns and heucheras. Goodness!
It's a shame that this entrance is never really used as everyone comes to the back and in through the deck.
The walkway to the front door doesn't see any traffic either.
But the little sitting area I carved out behind the rhodys does get used on those hot summer mornings when the sun is baking the back deck. Here I can enjoy the cool lush greens, listen to the fountain trickle and sip my morning coffee. Doesn't get much better than that. :-D
