Landscaping is Blooming Well This Spring
Concord grapes are starting to appear.
The artichoke plant is growing FAST!
One of my plans was to have wisteria grow up the columns around the house and frame out the different entry ways. I may be a few years off from that but they are growing quite nicely and the purple flowers are strikingly beautiful. I'm going to have to get a small trellis built between the columns as the wisteria will be tall enough to grab on soon.
