Sweetside in Early June 2010








A few pictures of the updates at Sweetside. I used my trusty old Mazda pickup to bring home 3 loads of awesome compost from UMass's Tilson Farm as I established a new bed out front consisting primarily of hydrangea, rhododendron and azaleas. My sidekick Mia kept me company as I hauled and hefted the treasured dirt. Then, our friend Julian was here for several days helping with many tasks including finishing the brick patio that overlooks the southside garden and stream. We've had many heavy rain storms, even some fairly extreme lightening and wind storms so far this month. I could do with a little less rain but I do like walking through the garden after its over. I particularly love the a way the giant hostas collect the water in their many folds.

Hi Carol, I must say your garden is looking so pretty this time of year! The rose and hosta leaf look so beautiful with the rain drops on them. I bet the new bed out front full of hydrangea, rhodies and azaleas will be gorgeous come fall time.

I, too am trying to find my way back into blog land...I haven't been posting nearly as much as I used to because my focus has been on my pottery. Thanks for the visit and the kind words about my shop!

Happy gardening!
