Everyone else is doing garden posts so I thought I would do one, too....
(photos are from mid-June; everything is much bigger now that it's almost July!)

I love my "new" raised bed because I think it
really anchors the garden. Seeds were planted
late this year--next year I can plant in early
spring without waiting to till.

This is one of my perennial beds, supplemented with annuals.

I usually make fake raised beds every year
using scrap wood we have lying around.
The column and table/chair are new this year.

My other perennial bed. The red roses are
on a mini rose bush from Valentine's Day
|across the lawn|
I love the flowering dogwood and all the honeysuckle.
|The hydrangea up front are in bloom.|

No photos of the auxiliary garden yet. It's still in progress. We have tomatoes, dahlias, zinnias, other flowers, and pumpkins/gourds in that one. I'll try to get out there and snap some photos for you, dad. :o) You would be proud, I finally took your advice and used some weed fabric....
