BIG MAMMA IS FINISHED! If you don’t know what I am talking about here is the link that explains what Big Mamma is:
Let me present to you my Big Mamma who is finished and officially opened for the Season of 2014. I am SO glad this garden is over and done. I only have 3 small gardens left to do, and the area around bushes on one side of our house. And then maintenance begins. Turn around and weed, bend down pluck that week and go on to another. And of course take care of those precious Rose Bushes. One thing I have done this year that is different I planted chives in between Rose bushes because I heard aphids do not like chives. Last year nothing I did deterred those aphids and they almost destroyed some of my bushes. Believe it or not. It is true.
So here you go. And now I can get back to normalcy, if that is even possible. Whew! I DID IT!!!!!
(The Rose Bushes are spaced around the entire perimeter, while in the center are my Lavender Bushes that don’t look very healthy this year, and a type of Lilac Bush. If you just focus on one Rose Bush, this will give you an idea how huge this garden is.)
