There’s not much to say here. In late July of 2012, the only thing I had planted in my tiny backyard was a Wisteria that had been happily growing on my fence until the lawn care company took it upon themselves to shear it off at ground level and tear it down.
I’m not sure how my anger about the Wisteria turned into planting about a dozen perennials, but there you have it. I know very little about gardening, though I benefit from my mother’s expertise. 2013 marks my first full summer as a gardener. Should be interesting.
Fun fact: you can’t kill a Wisteria. Cut down to the ground at the end of July, it grew eight feet before the fall.
Anyway – I have a very small garden, in the Beaches neighborhood of Toronto, and I’m trying to create a perennial-based bee, bird and butterfly garden.
