Okay, next, let's walk down the ramp to see what is just around the corner of the house.
Okay, now for a view from a different angle: the end of the driveway (left to right or east to west).
The ditches were glysophated by friends trying to be helpful since I can't keep the ditches cleaned out. In the last picture where you see overgrowth in the ditches is the neighbor's ditch.
The blackberries have done very well. I have a couple cattle panels and this Fall will use them to trellis the bushes so it will give some control and make harvesting easier.
A portion of the yard behind the house is fenced for our dogs. I want to fence the east and west thirds for duck-geese pasturing and leave the front center unfenced. It would be nice to have some flowering bushes along this fence...perhaps some gardenias to add fragrance as well.
Corner of the fenced area: there is a volunteer pecan which I want to remove. Then, three mulberry trees in a row along my southern property line.
On the other side are some bush willow in need of rescue.
The grassy line on the left is where I want to move the elderberries. A few starts have been planted in the foreground area.
Here are pictures of the annual garden area. Eventually, I want to have it all covered with wood chips.
And lastly, are the Santa Rosa Plums located in the northwest section. They flower but so far no fruit. I would like to cover in wood chips and add perennials and annuals to this area.
There is an antique rosebush near this tree and shaded by it. It is losing the battle against some other plant trying to overgrow it. I need to propagate it quick.
That concludes the tour. The souvenir shop is closed but we do have duck eggs available.
