Pieces of my Garden

My garden is currently scattered out across a backyard, a front yard, a screened-in porch, a breezeway, the back steps, and a couple of pots. I’m experimenting with several different things, lemongrass (which thrives in extremely hot sun, apparently), several different herbs in a fairy garden setting; ferns, succulents, and the propagation thereof, perennials for sun and shade, a few buckets of annuals, and whatever else I happen to bring home. These are my most major successes.

I almost have more fun with the photography than I do with the planting 😉

  1. I actually got to plant some flowers this year. Mainly sunflowers, but I love those. 2 different kinds of yellow and 2 different kinds of red. Plus the usual Mammoth type. Jimmy has all these plans for building, etc that I dont have a lot of choices of spaces. Yeah, on 5 acres of property!! lol Plus a lot of mine would have to be shade plants.
    I always enjoy looking at your photography!

    • I want to plant some sunflowers, they’re my favorite! Just haven’t figured out a good location for them yet. I’m going to have to figure out how to get attached to shade plants, just because we have so much of it!
