From commentor Delphinium:
Moved back near the Finger Lakes region of NY from Seattle about 8 years ago. When I bought into my house, there were a couple nice, albeit neglected, garden beds in the back so thankfully did not have to start those from scratch. Made one of the beds into an herb garden and the other into a flower garden since they both get full sun.
Planted hostas, hydrangeas, ferns, and spiderwort in the shady areas at the back of the house and by the garage. The front and side of the house had overgrown, half-dead yew bushes and those were finally dug out a few years ago and replaced with some junipers, dogwoods, and flowers.
The gardens are finally coming together after all these years, but of course there is always more work to be done!
These pictures were all taken in early and mid-June.
