“aerial” garden photo

My Rural Backyard Garden, Photos of my Gardens

I was able to get an aerial view of my “new” garden. (Actually not so new any more – this is it’s 4th year.)

My husband gave me a beautiful new pruning ladder for Christmas. I was able to place it at the top off the slope to the west of the garden and shoot a photo though the branches. I’d like to follow my garden through the year from one location. I wish I could get up a bit higher, but this is the top of the slope. Not as good as my old viewpoint from the second floor right above the garden. Maybe I can find a tree to climb with this new ladder…

My new ladder is tall enough for me to prune our overgrown bushes. My guess is the bushes in the photo on the right are a variety Chamaecyparis pisifera Threadleaf False Cypress. Maybe ‘King’s Gold’. They’ll look better if they are thinned out, shorter, and fuller.

These photos are quite a contrast to the ones I posted last. We’ve had two rain storms and weather in the 60’s! All of our snow is gone – replaced by mud. I opened up my winter tunnel to give it some fresh air. There are some nice bok choi that I can harvest soon.
