This time of year I spend some time looking back at old photos from the garden. It's fun to see how stuff looked back when it was growing, when leaves were on the trees, and at the most a cold wind only brought you down into the 80's on the old thermometer. So if you're like me and can't wait to see flowers, bees, butterflies, and vegetables rolling out of the garden take a deep breath and remember it will be here before you know it. For now though hang our here and take a peek at some photos from the past. These photos are all from July of 2009 and were taken in my garden.
