These are photos of a friend of mines backyard. She and her husband do a lot of that work themselves. I am not so inclined nor do I have the ability. And by ability I mean i nave no idea what I am doing and plant the wrong stuff everywhere. I plant shade plants in the sun and stuff wherever just because I liked it wherever. While I do have a cool water feature (otherwise known as a lake), my yard is less… well just less. The fact that I like to call mine “naturalized” should give you a hint. Over the last 20 years or so my friend Tonda has transformed a normal suburban yard into an amazing oasis. Kudos Tonda! So here is my plug for Delaware… The weather is so good and we have four seasons she can have a beautiful garden here. Yes FOUR seasons. Really! It is spring when it should be, summer when it should be and so on. Big thanks to the Chesapeake Bay, because we typically miss some of the nastiest winter weather.
