12. my backyard is a wild jungle


and that's pretty good for being in Siberia, Manitoba.

I have virginia creeper and a few other perenials that are allowed to grow however they like, with a little bit of direction on my part. Nothing too fancy and low maintenance is what I like. And I love it. It's lush and green and cuts down on noise pollution and feels great. Also have a couple Shepherds hooks with a few potted hanging plants here and there for spot colour and some boxes with veggies and tomatoes.

The front is pretty well status quo with cut lawn and sort of jonesy that way but I have plans to change that too next year, bit by bit.
