We live on three wooded acres and only a small portion of the yard gets more than six hours of sun, so veggies just have a seriously rough time. I did succeed this year with garlic and, in my new raised bed, with cucumbers. Nothing else of note.
|My one mini success in the veggie arena this year|
In the flower arena, here's a few select photos and a link to all the current photos. The yard is filled with somewhere between 25 and 30 hydrangeas of 5-7 varieties. My tallest blooms in late summer and is over 7 feet tall, but the size and number of these shrubs make them difficult to photo on mass. I've never been happy with a wide photo. In addition to the hydrangeas, I have several types of dicentra (bleeding hearts) and my daylillies actually do okay too. A wide range of other flowers give blooms throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

|This tradescantia (spiderwort) is actually a vibrant purple - hard to photo|
