    Thanks BigBilly.

    Not only did my sister pass away two weeks ago but her older son died this past Saturday at the age of 54.  Sad time for my family.

    Here are the balance of the pictures.  I need to get new pictures soon.  With all the rain garden is really growing.

    Posting the balance of pictures taken a couple of weeks ago....soon new pictures.



    Kiwi like plant.



    Okra and squash....fore front small flower bed.



    Climbing rose and cactus.  Iris freshly transplanted.

    That is sad news, Glad.

    Your garden is growing so, so well & has, no doubt, benefited muchly from the rain. Many thanks for posting these photos at this time. They are very welcome & good to see.

    Last week's pictures:



    Plant start sent from a forum friend (lightfootfan) several years ago and grows larger around each year by spreading under ground.  Has yellow flowers in mid July to early August.  See the mulch pile in background?  Going down.



    Privet hedge.  Inside is a small fire pit.



    Another view or privet hedge



    Dirt area was designed to prevent water build up in work shop and shed area.  Grass will grow on its own instead of sowing seed.

    Veggie pictures soon.

    Lovely garden, Glad. Everything is growing so well. A great deal of thought has gone into making it look so good  Your privet hedge is very attractive as well as being a great privacy screen. Interestingly, privet is considered a noxious weed here as it flourishes in our growing conditions a little TOO well & has become very invasive. 

    The plant from your friend is also very attractive & must look striking when in flower. Yes, the mulch heap is certainly being put to good use.  :D 

    Many thanks for sharing these images with us & they allow us to see just how things are doing in your well thought out garden.

    Thanks Joy.  The Privet hedge can become a challenge here also if not kept trimmed.

    My word, your veggie garden really is growing so quickly, Glad. It doesn't take long when the weather is kind, does it? Everything is looking so good & is a real credit to you & your "helpers".  :D 

    You have quite a little forest down at the bottom of the garden, too. The trees look wonderful. 

    Many thanks for posting these terrific photos & we are happy for you to see how well everything is flourishing.

    A bit miffed at the squirrel population.  They currently love my green tomatoes before they have a chance to ripen.

    The squirrels must think your garden is an "all you can eat buffet", Glad.  :lol3:  It would be disheartening to see your tomatoes get eaten by the little rascals. 

    We don't have that problem here as no squirrels but I'm sure there would be some pesky pest here which would scoff garden produce such as flying foxes.

    I will just have to deal with it Joy.  Maybe they will leave them alone when there are ripe.

    Perhaps they are just getting a dose of vit C, Glad. Thought they only ate nuts.  :lol3:

    I think there are more than one that are eating them.  Going to be different next year.  We planted 48 tomato plants surely I will get some ripe ones soon.

    Bought 6 bars of Irish Spring soap and tied string in the center then hung them near the tomato plant areas.

    Will let you know if it works!

    Had to Google Irish Spring soap, Glad, as I haven't seen it for sale here. Seems it comes in many scents  & varieties. Which one did you choose?  :lol3: 

    Good luck with the experiment. Hope it works for you & your tomatoes.  :luck:

    The original scent. 

    When I watered this evening I could smell the aroma of the soap so hope it works.
