We bought our house in the fall of -92. Before that we lived some years in an apartment. I have always loved flowers and gardening and now I had my own garden to take care of. Then there also was a small greenhouse on the property and I was very happy.
During the first summer I did a lot of weeding. I think it was more weeds than flowers in the flower beds. Through the years some shrubs and trees have disappeared and others have moved in.
The flower beds have changed and become only more and bigger year by year. The greenhouse quickly became too small and I bought a new second-handed in the same size as the old one and then I built them together. Believe it or not but they also became too small. Some years ago I changed them to a significantly greater.
I have had the privilege to get a lot of different perennials for free. That's good but... when you don't have somewhere to plant them you plant them everywhere and nowhere. You can't throw good plants away just because you really have nowhere to plant them, can you? Not me. The result is a whole bunch of different perennials growing in the "wrong" place, or too crowded.
Then, every year I sow new perennial seeds = more small plants (who tends to grow much bigger) I have to find somewhere to bed out. This do not make this task easier. How stupid can you be?
One thing that is good with all this is that I have very little weed to take care of!
Take a look if you want!
