I've been working on the backyard quite a bit lately. We moved here in the fall so this is our first spring and summer here. It's definitely a work in progress. At some point we will replace the chain link fence with something nicer and we'd love to put in brick cobble stones. But for now we are loving just having an outdoor space of our own, a rarity in New York City. I figured I would show pictures now and then late in the summer when things have filled in.
Trying out tomato plants, hope we get some good ones!
I planted a mini vegetable garden in a 3' x 3' raised bed, we'll see how it does! I've never tried this before.
Even when we looked at the house, we always loved this little hidden door in the back. It leads into the garage.
The previous owner had nice pergolas built both for our entrance and the backyard. I've planted wisteria for both. Hoping it takes over and covers the wood. This should be a cool before and after if it works.
There is a nice hydrangea bush (no idea what color the blooms will be), a holly bush (which is unruly and takes over) and a peach tree. I planted impatiens under the tree.
It's been so nice to have a spot to go in the morning and have my coffee or work on crochet projects or sewing outside. There is always a baby calling me away though just when I get into a project. Oh well, he a good distraction.
