My flower bed garden plot is coming along nicely this summer. I was strategic in choosing a spot right by the rain gutter. Syd has taken up his guardian duty after a week recovering from his injury. I still don't know what got a hold of him. Rumors of coyotes in town this year. Certainly, there are plenty of dogs on the loose. We are carefully guarding 3 tomato plants, a pepper, sunflowers, cilantro, and I am not sure what else might come up! I love flower beds, but this is a backyard, out of sight spot. The ugly concrete wall would defeat the purpose of a regular flower bed.
