In April we uploaded 259 pictures of our backyard to Flickr. Dang! The middle (mostly native) section is really filling in. I’m loving the Gilia capitata and Gilia tricolor. They’re both super bloomy right now. We have Gilia capitata ssp. chamissonis, too. Our Eriogonom ‘The Hub’ is getting ready to pop soon, too! Our Dudleya collection keeps expanding thanks to Matti’s rescues from work. Here are a couple more of my favorite pics from April.
About a week or two ago we finally signed up for a full Flickr account. I’m not sure what took us so long. Now we have a place to dump all the pics that don’t make it to the blog like the one above. We take tons of pictures of our backyard just so we can look back at them months later and compare. Matti took these before he ripped out the Agaves.
You can see a bunch more pics of our garden in our Backyard October 2010 set. No editing out the crappy parts of the garden here. Starting in November we won’t be blogging EVERY single day. The madness had to stop at some point. I think we made ourselves do it everyday when we started out, so we wouldn’t space out and abandon it. We’re thinking three or four times a week is more reasonable.
