Gardens are a form of autobiography.
Sydney Eddison, Horticulture magazine, August/September 1993
It was very hard to decide what view to post. When you look at the pics you can see that the garden is very close to the road and our neighbors house. I put shrubs and tall plants on the outer perimeter to give me privacy so there's not a lot to see wide view.
The street is quiet, for which I'm grateful. The houses were built on the side of the lot giving no land on one side of the house and a large side yard on the other.....which is where my big flowerbed is located.
|Standing across the street in front of my neighbors chain link fence. Facing east. Center shrub is White Lilac.|
|Another view across the street. You can see my home on the left. The closest shrub is a Nine Bark. This is facing NE.|
|This is facing SE. You can see our neighbors home is right there! I love the Maple tree but not much is growing under it's canopy. I'm rethinking what to do with that part of the garden.|
|SW view. Again, our neighbors home.|
|Looking West you can see my little patio. Our only Rhody is to the left. It survived a beating last winter.|
There are a LOT of mature trees in our neighborhood! We are getting less sun all the time.
