Photo Description
I have been really busy planting since we added a new retaining wall upper tier. This gave us more yard space above and replaced a useless steep slope to the original retaining wall. Here are some photos after the new wall (seen in the background), resulting plantings, and my garden in general. The birds, bees, and I are loving it.

$1 red geraniums from Lowe's. They always go on sale as the blooms fade. I have never been disappointed or lost one.

I don't always see that I have received comments. Thanks to you all. The latter part of the summer was spent weeding and trying to set up two new planting areas in the backyard. The house is older and one fun thing that occurs is finding old vintage bottles and other trash, as I dig.

My 5 year grandson and his older brother (some years ago) like to hunt for treasure :)
