She is being a camping volunteer for a week, think leaving today, so doubt she will answer, yep they took some honey home with them.

It is neat to see your own yard through a different persons photos, I like the perspectives she caught.

Geez, Addy, you should be charging admission! I'd pay to see that. ;)

We have had less than 10 people see the yard. It backs up to woods and not many visitors. Except photos you all see, pretty private little paradise.

great pics and addy and hubby must be proud of there piece of heaven .Seems seeing it through some one else's eyes really makes a difference and makes you feel really great about what you have created .You see it everyday so it becomes normal to you and then other people make you realize how much work you have done

This is so true! I look at my yard and all I see are projects still to be done. When other people see it, they see it for what it is and are kinda impressed! Granted, my little back yard is nothing compared to Addy's!

Sad to say acreage just means more work and lots more money .

I converted a lot of the grass to deal with to wildflower gardens mow them down in the fall done.
The back of our yard is woods we leave for the critters.

The slopes near the house are all planted and growing so good weeds have to fight to survive now. Some do still make it, I just keep gloves in my pocket, pull them on and yank if I see some.

The ponds take up some area, the front grass is planted with ornamental grasses, trees, flowers now and some grass that needs to be mowed.

Sort of a wild look but it is what I love.

I saw my first one of these on my bee balm over the weekend! They are SOOOOOO cool! We've also seen a nocturnal one (Sphinx moth of some sort, I guess?) Bee balm definitely has a lasting place in my garden!

J's bee hives have arrived and he is busy putting them together and painting them.
I overheard him bragging to someone about how much nicer your honey tastes!

Nice to hear!
now I just need to learn how to sell it! I am not good at selling give away a lot more things than I sell. But honey from our bees is a lot of work a bunch of money so gotta sell it.

I have never seen a frog eating one, but I am sure it happens.

Thank you logan for posting a couple pics from addy's . There's so many of the damn photobucket block outs on the photo's it's aggravating. I use to use photo bucket I am very glad I dumped them long ago. i do hope NO one pays there ransom and they go south like Kodak and polaroid not that they were bad at all just were house hold names gone with the years. That pitcher plant photo was amazing how healthy they are as was all the plants. Addy you have a sweet tractor and know where left to use it. Are you installing ponds for others now?
