Planting came early this year. The weather was warm and dry during
April/May and unusually
moist through to August. I don't recall watering the lawn more than twice in July.
2004 saw some nice improvements to the garden. Carol helped gather lots of
edging stones and we built 3 new gardens in front of the house.
In one garden we planted climbing roses that will be worth photographing
next year - I hope. In the other, we did a small Japanese Garden - by the front door.
The final garden was between the evergreens on the front lawn as we are
about to show you.
