The landscape is comeing to life.

These should take about one minute each on a 28K modem.(they are as small as I could get without significant loss)

So a bit of photoshop practice making a decent panarama from my P.O.S. digital cam. This is my front yard veiwed from my front door, Sunday May 8th 2005. I planted most of it and the lawn about 14 months ago. The other part is 10-15 years old. The large red flowered bush on the right is about 6 feet high, for a scale referance.(it's a rhodedendron)


And a Zoomed in bit.

Beautiful!! You have a talent for sure. Little green monster peeking up!!! I do not have a green thumb at all. I got a plant for Mother's Day from a friend of mine and she said, and you can plant it in your front yard. Yeah, right...

Those panoramic shots are really tricky. I don't even bother, I tried a few and they never turned out too well.

Very nice looking yard, how about a pic from the street?

I designed it for the house, not the street. But if I get a bit more time this week sure.

Nice!

I love gardens. I've never had one because I've been apartment hopping, but I have the perfect wild garden in mind when I finally do get my own house. Until then, I just live with indoor container gardens.

Good work, dood!

So, just wondering what comes in after the tullips? I plant nastursiums (seed the bed) right when the bulbs are budding, they continue to frost, and they look good in the salad bowl too.

Most of my gardens are beach front properties. Can be difficult and delicate to plant, with almost no deciduous trees.
Iris, peony, lupine, delphinium, foxglove, poppies, centurium, dianthus, hollyhock, zebrina - may blooming perennials. Summer bulbs, dahilias, lilies. Late perennials. And I begin planting masses of summer annuals- zinnias, petunias, cosmos, portulacca, cleome, phlox, gerbera, lobelia, verbenas. The last week in May I begin planting tropicals- hibiscus, dipledenia, jasmine, mandevilla, palms.
kinda goes like that....oh and every proper english or cottage garden must contain roses, hydrangea and
clematis.

I eat arugula with my nastursiums. and a lovely brunello.

Very nice. You are about - two and a half weeks ahead of us in southern BC. Soon enough though.

I have to replace the liner in the pool this year so haven't started the pump and filter running yet - it is now a really nice shade of green - much like your lawn! I could take a picture of that! .....

Don't judge the time by the Rhodies, there are varieties around here that bloom in mid march, others in June, and everywhere in between. I have one that has lost most it's flowers already and another that just has it's buds breaking open.

Or are you going by the trees?

Trees, we can't really grow rhodies successfully here, pretty much a desert. We are basically straight north of Wenatchee in the Okanagan VAlley, pretty HOT and DRY.
