Gardening in America
July  12,  2006, Yard and Landscape

by Nancy Fletcher

I could not afford to have these cedars trimmed up this year but wanted them done so I could plant the winter onions here (barely visible on table). A young man offered to do them in exchange for a painting. He came out and he and Rodney trimmed them like this in about three hours. I'm still working on his painting.

These are Four O'clocks. A friend who was looking at them said, "My sister said they call these Four O'clocks in England because they bloom then. Here in the U.S. we should call them Eight O'clocks.

This is directly out of the back door. Grape vine grows on a trellis to cover the back porch windows here. Little Cherry Tomatoes are just now coming on, and Zennias are in front of the lacy Artemesia bush.
