The Lower Gardens

 Teddy loves visiting the lower gardens each day. She checks out every square inch of them

 Moss growing on the stepping stone used to cross the creek.  I love moss and want it everywhere and sure enough it has planted itself and grows almost everywhere I want it to.

 On the list of projects.  Persian Ivy is taking over the back of the stone house.

 This is an apple tree arbor in need of a very good trim.

 A bench that needs to be reset.

 My fig trees have figs already.

 Though I was not going to plant a garden down here this year, it is slowly filling in.  I should stop visiting nurseries. I keep finding things I can't live without. This is a row of peppers.

 And a row of leeks planted in front of the chives.

 Pumpkins!

 Something ate all of my zucchini plants.

 Celery.

 The garlic will be harvested soon.

 An espaliered apple. I have two of them against this fence and this year they have apples for the first time.

 The grape vines are loaded this year.

And I just came back from a nursery this morning so there are about to be many more things planted this afternoon.
