the lions share takes shape~

 after being unable to walk for 6 weeks, i was thrilled to get back into the garden, especially as i began planting my annual and perennial flowers beds in the lions share garden.  this will be my main color garden, set in a formal design, i will have 4 squares of color in 4 squares, meaning i have 16 flower beds to indulge all my garden fantasies! i just planted my first 4 squares, as you can see this is very much a construction site! i planted a red and burgundy square, blue and white, pinks and orange and yellows. You can see the filthy air from the ravaging fires, turning day to night when its extra heavy.
