Power Washing the Garden

It is a glorious day here today.  The temps are cool, the sun is shining and the humidity is low.  We don't get many days like this so I am thoroughly enjoying it.  And I am going to power wash! This whole area is in need of a good washing.  It gets lots of shade and there is moss and mildew on everything.  I am hoping the doors clean up and look a bit like they did when I first bought them.
 This is the view from the top of the gardens.  It's a jungle down there.

 We had so much rain the other day that I had a bit of flooding.

 My asparagus loved it and stood straight up.

 The tomatillos doubled in size overnight.

 The fennel is thriving in the moist cool soil.

 The roses are droopy and not liking the rain.

 My nasturtiums should bloom soon.

I cut the garlic scapes this morning and made omelets with them.

Celery.

These are mums from last year.

I am using my Christmas tree trunk as a trellis for the bougainvillea to grow on. It has already started to wrap around it.

The magnolias are about to bloom.

The daffodils are replenishing their bulbs for next year.

Upper pond.

Huge hostas.
