Lil`old garden update.

 In April, the garden looked pretty much like this :

Then the rain came.

Non-sop rain.

so much rain.

As of half an hour ago, the yard looks like this :


i just let nature take its course this year. I cut the grass maybe twice; didnt feed anything.


i planted this fuchsia a month ago, the purple flowers go really well with the crocosmia behind them.

the grapevine started growing eventually, i`m expecting my first real grapes this year, not many mind.
