Out and about in the yard

I decided to walk off my beans and cornbread by visiting the yard.

The miniature crepe myrtle is blooming. It looks like I need to do some grass removal.
This tree is growing around the Bristol hook that holds one of the bird feeders. Considering the hook has only been there a couple of years, that tree is growing pretty fast.
In the garden I have purple bell peppers. Aren't they pretty?
My oldest grape vines have black spot. I haven't been able to find the fungicide around here that is supposed to take care of it.
One end of an old metal baby bed. The other end is behind my yellow climbing rose.
This is the orphan grape. The dog chewed it and I neglected it. Finally, I planted the poor thing and it's doing well. I put a baby bed side behind it for climbing.
Future home of a greenhouse. I hope. I have another place to put the swing.
I wonder how many 2 x 4's are up there? I should check on that.
