Butterfly hunting in our tiny backyard...

So, although Petticoats Advance is a family-run farm, my husband and I actually just purchased and live in an 1880's era rowhouse in Baltimore City. We're one of the lucky ones - - we have a HUGE backyard for a city property AND a garage. :) We just finished re-seeding the grass and planting a new flower bed and are planning on mulching everything this weekend. (If you can't tell, we're trying to get ready for our open house in a few weeks!). Most of the perennial plants are new and we're hoping they'll 'weather the winter' and fill in next spring. I thought I'd share pictures as the backyard starts to evolve. :)

Our flower-filled backyard is one of our little respites in the 'big city' - - and another way we bring a little bit of the farm "home"... It's a great place for a cup of tea in the morning or a glass of wine with friends in the evening!

I actually work out of my home most of the week (as an educational technology specialist), so I caught these cute pics of our 'butterfly hunters' out back at lunchtime today. Thought I'd share!

Green space is such a luxury in the city. Beautiful yard!
