The Tuesday View June 28

I’m linking up with Cathy at Words and Herbs where participants take weekly photos of the same garden over the course of the growing season to note its subtle evolution.

I had overhauled this bed early this spring and had taken a photo of it, thinking I would take periodic shots of it, knowing it would look drastically different by mid-summer.

I’ve shown below all the photos I’ve taken since April 1st, and will try to add a new one weekly. As most gardeners know, time tends to slip by unnoticed in the garden! I may be a bit late from time to time, but the garden doesn’t care.

    Now that IS wonderful Eliza! What a beautiful transformation, and precisely what my intention was with this meme, to follow the changes over the gardening year. The difference between the end of May and mid-June is most striking. Thank you so much for joining in again… there are several others posting views now too. 😀

    I love how June 11, new growth has popped out on the spruce.

  6. Beautywhizz says:

    Lovely to see the progress.

  7. Jim Ruebush says:

    This is one of the reasons I like to walk the various paths near our home. Each time is a snapshot in time of what is growing and changing.

  8. Lovely to see the progress!

    What a great idea! I’m currently voting for May, but I reserve the right to re-vote later.

  11. What a great idea. It’s wonderful to see the changes. Beautiful.

    The woodland backdrop to this border make it spectacular. It will be fascinating to see the development over time.

      Thank you, Christina. This really is more of a summer garden. To the left of the photo is where I plant potatoes, garlic and a couple tomato & basil plants. We get most of our produce from a local farm.

    Wow, what a leap from April to May. What happened? Lots of rain?

    California looks more like the April photo. Dry and brown.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It was actually a cool and relatively dry spring. We’re about 30% below average in rainfall for June. Things would be much more robust if we had normal rain. We need a good soaking, but if you are in CA, I expect things are much worse there.

  14. Off to a great start.

  15. Kris P says:

    What a transformation! As didbydigz says, our gardens are moving in the opposite direction.

  16. Widdershins says:

    “Grow, my Pretties. Grow!” 😀

    What growth! What beauty.

    What a terrific reminder of how hard our gardens are working, even if they aren’t always doing what we expect.
