Summer's Eve

While spring started out sluggish summer is being ushered in with the Queen waving everyone to enter.
 The garden isn't much worse for this past winter's wear. With the blooms of spring coming to an end and summer's foliage beginning to come to fore I can almost forget the long cold of winter except that is when I look at my knot garden. It had some major damage. I will have to work on that.
Other than this some dead limbs at the ends of the Locust tree and the poor pyracantha shrub being half dead the garden is is scooting right along. My little stand of Butterfly weed looks quite nice now.
A couple of shots of earlier in the spring when my computer was kaput.
The above is the path that goes to the patio 
This is in front of the patio.
The view from the patio toward the west end.

If you are sitting with us under the maple tree looking to your right this is part of what you see.
 
If you let your eye follow the path you would see what would be at the next intersection.

Straight ahead you would see this little fairy taking a nap under the hosta. Shhhhhh
To the left you would see this part of the garden. Oh yes, the veggie garden is over there behind the barn in the forgotten corner that's no longer forgotten . Yes, you can see a lot of green which will be very soothing this summer.
I will post about the veggie garden another time. I hope your garden is growing madly trying to make up for this past winter.
