This is part of the path from our side to their there side. It isn't much of a view. That shed is temporary (?) storage. I look at it positively in that it hides their deck from our view and vise versa. It affords us some privacy. From their side you can see this metal arch arbor is showing its age. It wasn't an expensive one. I got it at a Big Lots store. They usually have all sorts of cheap garden accessories.
This is the view the neighbors get when they happen to come over for a beverage and some jammin. A good time is had by all. The path the girls took sort of veers to the left onto mulch and to go into the rest of the garden you veer right. It is quite apparent when you are here. To the right, just beyond the stone and the end of what I call the blackberry patch,is where I am making the new flower bed. The blackberry patch has become smaller and smaller over the years. We still have enough blackberries to make too much jelly for us and friends so that is ok. We have tried raspberries here too. They don't seem to grow very well. I wonder why?? I thought that raspberries might need the same requirements as blackberries. They must need something they don't get in this location. Hmmm Does anyone else grow raspberries? Can you give me any hints as to what they might need that they aren't getting here? It may be as simple as not enough sun. I know blackberries don't need as much sun as other fruits. Y'all have a nice weekend. Stay warm while dreamin' of all those juicy fruits.
