I posted a ton of new photos on flickr of everything blooming in our yard, and when the yard belongs to a botanist who loves gardening there is a lot blooming. While the yard can be gorgeous, the weeds and work are not. I had no idea how much work my dad spent on the yard until we moved in. To say that it is a big job for a mom of 4 little ones is an understatement. I do what I can, but unfortunately much of the gardens don’t get all the work and attention they need. So along with the gorgeous flowers I am sure that the trained eye will pick out all the weeds too *sigh*. I won’t post all of the photos here, there are too many, just a few.
