Summer garden update

We are getting ready for the house painters.  We had to remove a number of shrubs and other plants to allow access.

Here are some summer garden photos:

We pulled the cleomes today for the painters.  I sure loved them.  Here they are with the Clerondendrum

My tuffet

I made my own tuffet.  It was easier than I thought and I love it.
