I love to garden, it makes me happy.  I live in Michigan which means I only get a limited time to garden outside.  I try to make the very most of it.  My husband would say I go overboard...but what does he know?!?   Wink
I was super excited to see this challenge.  I've never participated in a challenge and a garden one seems right up my alley. 
So sit back, relax, and watch my container garden magically transform!

Here are some close ups of my veggies and some of the flowers:


My bead sun catcher was attacked by cucumber vines!

Creepy Crawlies!


And here is a view of the whole backyard :

And one more of the container garden:

And finally, here's some bounty from a day last week.  There's kale, cucumber, zuchinni, summer squash, eggplant, peppers, basil, chamomile, and lavender.  Can you spot them all?

Thanks for looking!

Great garden. I love that it looks like landscaping instead of a great big square in your yard! I never would have thought of that.

The progression of time and growth of life is gorgeous! And I really love the addition of the table and rug.

Your yard is lovely!  I'd love eating dinner out there each night!

This has inspired me to "upgrade" my container garden.  I currently only have hebs in mine.  I tried tomatoes 2 summers ago but they failed (container was either too small or my middle daughter killed them with love) LOL My middle daughter has moved out so my plants may have a better sucess rate next summer I live in Indiana so I have the same issue with short growing cycles.  Thanks for the inspiration!
