Now that warm weather is finally here, I decided to take a tour around the yard to capture some of our blooms and foliage.
Our little old shed is original to our 1856 home and houses the stairway to the wine cellar. The shed will get a makeover and new roof next year. So many projects and we do most of them ourselves so it takes lots of time and patience.
Don’t judge me for my weeds. : D
Every garden needs a pop of lush chartreuse that sweet potato vine gives so abundantly.
We salvaged this knotty section from a giant tree that sadly fell last month during a storm and turned it into a planter. I love the bark and it was covering the entire piece.
Not happy with this guy. Caught here in the act of chewing off the bark and removing the planted impatiens. I will have to go online and hunt for a squirrel deterrent to spray this with before he and his friends remove it all.

Thanks for linking up at my party….sprinkle blood meal on it and the squirrel will leave it alone. I have the same problem if I plant impatiens and sweet potato vines. Sprinkle blood meal and they won’t eat it and it won’t hurt them. They don’t like the taste. Plus it will work as a fertilizer. You will find it with the fertilizers at the garden center.
I love your hostas and the trunk planter. I get some pesky squirrels too. They dig out bedding plants burying seeds in my yard.
Naughty squirrel!! Your yard looks wonderful…and I am in love with your shed :)
