I have only spent five summers in my 90 year old house on Long Island. For the past few years i have been using this section of my backyard for a vegetable garden. This year I have decided to make a change. Due to the fact that I live alone and the past few summers have been very hot and dry here, I felt that I would be better off planting vegetables in pots on my deck. My friends were also getting sick of me begging them to take extra tomatoes and zucchini!
I made the decision to turn this area into a flower garden complete with a stone pathway and a water feature. With my lifestyle now, I think this would be a change for the better. Because we have had SO much rain the past few weeks, I am a little behind schedule, but I am hopeful it will be completed in a few weeks!!!!! I will continue to post pictures as the progress continues. This picture shows it at the very beginning. Can’t wait for the finished garden!!!!!!
