My yard is sunny in the front, and mostly shaded in the back. I have three large trees on my property - a maple in the front, and in the back and elm and something else that I don't know what is. I also have a Rottweiler, so my yard takes a lot of abuse from the dog running around in it.

"Sarah it looks like you are really getting started with great garden. Nice plant choices. Your 'Fairy Garden' is so cute. I told myself that this year I would do a 'Fairy Garden' with my Grand Kids. The Fairy House is darling. Do you have any fairies? I wonder where you find miniture fairy statues? Have you visited Faery Hollow on this site? Barb has done an excellent job on her fairy garden. Smiles, Lark"
