Today's photos are from Carolyn Kreider in Continental, Ohio. Carolyn says, "My garden is on less than half an acre in Zone 5 in northwest Ohio, and I've been working on it for about 22 years. It's been in a state of flux this year because there were two severe storms that came through, removing two large evergreens and flattening about half of the back fencing. I'm still waiting for the contractor to come in to rebuild the fence and make other minor repairs.
     The last 10 years I've been making changes in the garden to make it easier for me to care for as I get older. I put in the back pathway to make it easier to work in the garden when the weather is rainy, pulling weeds, etc. I removed about half of the grass in the back garden, laid down landscape fabric and hauled in pea gravel, eliminating a lot of mowing and trimming. In two different sections of the garden, I combined several small garden beds and made them into two large beds with paths running through them to make access easier. I have other changes that I would like to make in the garden, but the days are too short!
     My garden is both a challenge and a never ending source of happiness." Wow, Carolyn, what a great garden! The stone edged pea gravel paths are especially nice. Thanks so much for sharing.
