The flower beds have changed several times over the years. The property was our weekend place for twelve years so Betty couldn't really devote the proper time to tend to them. Now that it is our full time residence she is getting a handle on what she wants out of a flower garden. She wants to see different flowers blooming at different times of the year, this way there is always something in bloom. With the birdbath in the garden birds are always drawn there and the cats are always on the lookout for mice and snakes. As you can see in this pictures the cats are just going out to a day of hard work "sleeping" before they come back inside the house to get more sleep.
