The removal of the big shade tree last year required some changes in the back garden, including a new gravel sitting area and two new borders lining the brick pathway that bisects the garden.
Last year the two new borders looked like this:
This spring they look like this:

What you can't see in these pictures is the new gravel sitting area to the left of the path. I eventually want to plant a new shade tree here but I must wait a bit. Meanwhile an umbrella does the job, I hope to share this spot with you in a later post.
Since I took these picture the larkspur has put on quite a show, this is the first time I have ever had what I considered enough larkspur. I will be cutting lots of it to dry before I pull it out to plant my zinnia seedlings. Zinnias are wonderful annuals for our hot, hot summers.
