Here are a few pics of the shady side of the garden. The pic with the bird bath was taken from the deck. We planted a line of hostas running between our yard and the yard next door to help keep the weeds down. They have no grass back there and it is pretty wild. Too many trees to do much with it. We had the flagstone path leading up to the front of the house put in about 3 summers ago. You just had to walk on the grass and we are constantly trying to grow grass back there and now we can. I planted the rhubarb yesterday and hope it takes off. If it does I will have to re-do that flower bed which I had planned to do once that tree was down anyway. I had planted the miniature hostas around the tiny frog birdbath but they have grown so wild that they have to be thinned out one of these days also. when you have a garden there is always something to do. When the flowers start to grow in the garden on the deck I will take some pics and let you see that.

Freda: Thanks for visiting and commenting on my kite!

Your property is absolutely beautiful your garden looks. And I LOVE rhubarb!

Your gardens are so pretty Freda. Right now there's a freshly baked rhubarb pie upstairs waiting for a dollop of ice cream later tonight. Yum!

Lovely photos. You are so lucky to be able to have hostas in your garden. Mine have to stay in pots because of the slugs and they even manage to bridge the gap to those at times. My cousin has had to resort to putting hers in hanging baskets!
