This is the other side. If you look across the drive you will see part of our front yard. We live at the bottom of a hill, makes gardening interesting.
This of course is the front. Should I plant something at the bottom of the wall? I will have plants trailing over the top.
The wall is behind me, this is a side shot of our home.
I love how this Dianthus has grown up the side of this oak tree. This is by our front porch.
The other side of the Oak. Day Lilies, Shrimp plant. To the left a Amaranth not doing to well now. The left side where the Amaranth is was filled with the red and green Caladiums and it was so pretty when the Amaranth was healthy.
As you can tell this is across the driveway from the wall. It's a mess as well. From this end of the driveway going around the front yard to the other end of the driveway, I missed the four Oak Trees with Day Lilies around them and then a small Camellia. We plan to connect it all the way around the front yard. (But that's a LOT of grass to get up)
This is a ongoing project as all gardens are. We are trying to go all the way around the front yard. We just planted these shrubs this past Sunday,Petite Red Ixora, 2 to 3 feet high. The Crepe Myrtle with the Pansies underneath, this is also where I have my Calla Lilies.
You saw the bench in the last photo to the left of the picture. Now this flower bed was created after the Red Brick Castle Wall, so it's really new. Just moved some Hosta up here so it's sad right now.
Behind the bench I have a few Caladiums and two Nandinas. I plan to fill it with Caladiums this spring.
Now it goes around the corner of the front yard. You see the other end of our driveway? Across it is the big Sun garden.
This is the end so far. I need to continue to the Oak Tree, see it? I have Amaryllis all around it. Then you see the little shrubs we just planted.
Here is the Sun Garden where I take all of the Butterfly and Insect photos. It really does look pretty in the Spring and Summer. It will be filled with Purple Coneflowers, Black Eye Susans, Celosia, Zinnias and then a bunch of other stuff and containers as well. Sort of like a Flower Jungle. Oh yeah, peppers tomatoes and blue berries are in here too! Will do the peppers and tomatoes in containers next year. Trying to focus on the Butterflies and other critters in this area.
Standing at the top of the other driveway. See all of the leaves.........Look at the Elephant Ears in the woods.
I am standing on the upper deck that's right outside our Kitchen. There's the beginnings of the Veggie Garden.
Looking to the other side of the yard from the upper deck. Beyond the Sunflower Tree are my husband's fruit trees....We have Tangerines and Grapefruits hanging right now. The little white building is the girls old playhouse. May turn it into a tool shed just for me. Would be a great place to store flowers. I hope you enjoyed the tour. Not much, but it's ours!!
