    Thanks Corporal! Closest bigger town to me is Lafayette (Purdue). I'm about 45 miles or so north of campus.

    I'm 22 miles SSE of Cham-bana. You're about 3 hours from me. I went to a Purdue game several years ago, and we took SR41 north to get there. Ever been to "The Beef House?"

    I've figured out their recipe. They use honey.

    My color choice was limited by Walt Disney.

    Taffy, I wish I could do something like that to pics of my house to help with a visual when planting things.
    My house was completely bare with no foundation plantings at all....and the blank canvas has been a bit overwhelming at times.
    I know there is fancy software for that, but I'd rather spend the money of flowers or shrubs.


    Guys, I couldn't find a recent of the iris or a regular pic of peonies... they are on another pc, but here are the iris from two farms ago at my grandpa's place. We dug them from there and took them to a different farm, then dig some and brought them to here where they've had oodles of babies.

    This is my iris and peony that I was working on making for a background, but you can see how well they go together.

    Here is a pic off the web of the Sara Bernhard variety and I have others (don't remember name/color) that will bloom for the first time this year and I'll get pics when they do.

    Baby Asian pear trees! I had forgotten how rocky my yard is too!

    See the lilac to the left? (This side of the drive in front of the huge maple)
    When I first moved here the old owners had chopped them down to about a foot high. Now you can see how high it is compared to my truck. It and my other lilacs seem to bloom heavily every other year. Last year was the heavy blooms, but everything was late frost damaged. This year no damage (yet) but the blooms are sparse.
    The whole yard still smells nice even with the slightest breeze from these and the ones next to the house.

    See the little 2' x 4' boxes in the background? That is where the strawberries are supposed to live. Apparently they don't like to be confined. LOL

    DD's strawberries must not like confinement either. She has a 24' x 6' raised bed and they've spilled out. I pulled grass & weeds around the overflow for a friend to come dig up the spare plants, well DH with his manly tunnel vision, blasted them all with the weedeater. Ugh.
