Green Things Growing

I am pleased with the flower borders. I trimmed the Abraham Darby English Rose shorter so that it would not be so leggy. It is complimenting the rhubarb, iris and peonies rather nicely. A flower border is about visual harmony and diverse texture. My flowers look to be happy and holding hands.
You can see the lettuce, squash & parsley abounding. I have the same vegetables as last year but I have added a few. The lettuce is a first timer ... really tasty. I have lots of tomato plants. I grabbed a package at the nursery thinking it was Roma Tomatoes but they turned out to be Whoppers... I was bummed until I saw Roma coming up from last years seeds. I have Sweet Cherry Tomatoes and Big Boy as well. I'll fill you in on the rest later.
