Love the Dinneplate Dahlias. Growing them is a slippery slope if everthere was one.

You're going to eat COLANDERS????

(Speaking as someone with absolutely no desire to eat {or grow} beans...)

They can be quite nice if they're ripe enough.

By the way, I adore that uke. She is beautiful.

Of all the things I see in the Luthier's Lounge your garden pictures are my favorite. I look forward to them every year. Did you repaint the house recently? The red looks pretty fresh.

Is the low hedge a boxwood? I just started my boxwood hedge 3 years ago. How long did it take to get that dense? I have hedge envy!

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, Don’t be alarmed now, It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen.

I have hedge envy!It don't take too long to get established about 10 to 15 years I recon...mine was planted in 1973... started with one small bush and kept splitting it through the roots..and replanting ...How time fly's :old:
