Here is a photo from last week.
Just for comparison here are pair of pictures from June 2014 and June 2015 taken from roughly the same vantage point.

Here's another picture from last week and the same view from 2014 and 2015.

It's pretty amazing to see how much the garden has filled in in the past few years. There is still a lot of open space, but it is rapidly filling up with self-seeded plants. The ultimate goal is that the entire surface of the garden will be filled with live plants. Once that happens, the garden will no longer need to be mulched and it will naturally exclude almost almost all weeds due to a lack of space.
That's enough comparison with the past. The remaining few photos were all taken last week. Enjoy!
