Here is Part II of the Outdoor Living Tour. But first, I want you to see the before photos, when I first moved here 8 years ago:
And now onto the present day, here is the front yard:
The two trees on the right are Rose of Sharon, and in the lower right, the green plant is what’s left of the peonies. Some people cut down the plant after it blooms, Ieave it just to have the greenery. The pink flower sticking out by the back gate is part of my huge hydrangea plant (Should get a good close-up of that).
This black eyed Susan is a total act of nature, and just started growing out of this whiskey barrel (courtesy of Jack Daniels) on my front porch. There is another whiskey barrel on the other side of the porch, but they are both going to be retired at the end of the summer. They are starting to rot and fall apart. So, I’m going to invest in big plastic containers that look like ceramic pots in a solid color.
I hope you have enjoyed my outdoor living tour, and hope you have a great weekend!
