Garden Pics & Video Tour
My 1,500' native plant garden is remarkable. Each year plants die, others thrive, still others move to places nearby from where I put them as if saying hey, you were so close, but this is what I prefer. Plants evolve and morph before my eyes, and in the rush of May and June growth it's all a gardener can do to keep up. When July comes with all of its prairie blooms, the relatively peaceful onslaught of thousands of insects is a welcome breath of air as many plants complete their annual cycles like punctuation marks at the end of a sentence. So here's what it looks like this week -- even as the baptisia and eupatorium grow 6" a day.

Enjoyed the tour--thank you!
I totally agree...in the past, when something would die, I would be so mad and rush out to find a replacement. Now, i sort of view it as the garden telling me that those plants weren't suited to the location...and I get to try again :-)
I enjoyed the tour. Yes, the plants are growing very quickly now. The wild sennas have been up a week or two. It's fun to see how quickly the last ones to come up grow.
The tour is very much appreciated. Glad you have shared it. This type of shed http://www.cheapsheds.com.au/garden-sheds/2-3-metre/stormshed-gable-roof-2-25m-x-1-50m-single-door-zinc-cyclonic.html would perfectly fits your garden
Thanks for flipping the camera, I did not want to have to hold my computer sideways.
