I actually have 2 garden spots (or "jungles" as the grandkids call them)...one in the front yard and then most of the back yard. I have no lawn in the front, except on the west side of the driveway. The back yard, alas, does have a lawn, but I've managed to plant sunflowers, hollyhocks, and now beans & squash in various spots. I have bird feeders set up in both yards.
I went around yesterday and took photos of the "hollyhock jungle" and some odds & ends. It's good to view things other than the flowers every now & then. I had a hummingbird accompany me for a while and I enjoyed seeing all the bees in the hollyhocks, but that's another story for another day.
