Garden Build Gutter Garden Garden Photos

In 2010, when I first moved into my new house, there was a rather large mound of dirt next to the fence in the back yard. I knew that this would make a really great garden, and so I built a retaining wall, moved a bunch more dirt around and made a nice little get away in my back yard, complete with a small pond and swing. Here you will see some photos of my Butterfly Garden, my back yard and front yard vegitable gardens, some of the critters that call my gardens home, and some of the plants that I have growing out there. Please check out the Garden Build photos, the photos of the Gutter Garden, and current and past photos of my gardens by checking out the links above.
