August Tour 2013

Front Garden


Back Garden

Side Garden

Vegetable Garden




  1. You have such a pretty home/yard. Are those succulents in the back?

    Hope you guys enjoy the weekend.

    1. Hens and chicks are visible in the side garden.
      They have really filled in their space.

  2. After reading the comment about the hen and chicks I had to go back and take a second look - they look kinda big! They are so fun to grow - close ups are so cool.

    The yard is looking green with the rain,wonderful to have rain.

    1. The hens and chicks are getting big. Some are almost dinner plate sized.

  3. I've always admired your collection of containers-I especially like that tall one next to the post. Things sure are looking much greener.
    We actually got a GOOD rain yesterday---almost an inch. The ground never absorbed a drop (too dry), but my rain tubs are FULL for the first time in ages. What a great feeling!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. It's always a treat to see what is going on there in your gardens. I'm really glad you've gotten some much needed rain lately.

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

  5. You can sure tell that you love to garden. All your spaces are very nice and a have peaceful look and I suspect feel to them. I guess, being a guy, mine always have a more rugged look and feel. I really should incorporate more flowers to give a softer look. I'm intrigued by how you integrate the yard art among the flowers. Did you start with a plan for these garden areas or did they evolve over the years kind of like what mine are doing?

    Have a great day and if you have some extra rain can you send it my way?

    1. Everything has evolved I guess. I did the beds around the edge of the garden first and then filled in the middle. Wanted shrubs and taller stuff on the outside and needed paths through the middle.

  6. Certainly does look better than it does in winter.... ha ha.... AND--since you have had rain, I'm sure everything in your garden is doing better...


  7. I wish I could grow a vegi garden. I want to try it sometime. Have you ever considered hanging a wrought iron decorative piece or planting a tall conifer in that place in the middle of your house( in the front)? Maybe even a trellis would looks good there. take care! Gina

  8. It is always fun to see how things change from month to month! Happy Aug :-)
