WIP Wednesday - Garden update!

Apparently I am playing outside way more than in - so I'll show you what I'm working on (ie, gardens, not studio..). Here's a brief overview of some of the growing things in my yard -
My 'woodland area' underneath my firs out front.... Lots of undergrowth of various states of edibility-

One of my gates to the back gardens - with magnolia berry climbing on one side, and hops on the other.

The front berry bed - 7 different kinds of blueberry, 2 different gooseberries, aronia berry and seabuckthorn.

Pathway to the backyard - multiple varieties of (edible) daylilies, lavender, rosemary, santolina, yarrow, and lemon balm...

Herb boxes on the back deck (waiting for it to get warm enough for the addition of basils..)

More berries - jostaberry, red currant, red raspberry patch (and grapes just starting to bud against the fence).

Raised beds (in and out of shade here) - strawberries, greens, and assorted veggies and potherbs...

New spiral garden (with perennial, medicinal herbs just starting out), the potherb and perennial bed behind and a chicken coop full of very grumpy hens -

- they hop on their feed can and chastise me quite thoroughly because I am not letting them out while the new, young plants are growing... Maybe next month, girls - if it warms up enough for things to actually get going....

We'll see how things look in June!

Love the spiral! They are going to be high vibratitional herbs that grow in that area.
