I'm on the road today, but thought I would show you some of my favorite views of my garden before autumn eats it.
Not really a tour, but you'll see the same plants from different angles which may help orient you.
I've never been happier with this part of the garden, which this year I planted with tropicals and tender grasses.
Works so well with the castor beans in the background! The deck needs a bit more stain, but the two-tone color scheme... I like!
Hard to believe that in a month everything you see here except the bamboo and fernspray cypress (difficult to see right now) will be gone.
Although the veggie bed fence is not yet complete, I love this view down to it now:
Vertigo fountain grass is such a feature plant!
My back is sort of to the veggie beds in this one -- not a view I share too often:
People ask why I grow so many different bamboos. This is why -- look how well they work together! (There are at least 7 bamboos visible in that shot)
This may be my favorite view -- you only get it when standing at the edge of the yard by the veggie beds and turning around:
I don't want to toot my own horn too much, but I think I did a great job here.
Another view that is better this year than last due to the addition of some grasses and letting the maypop vines grow a little wild:
The big Miscanthus is really floppy this year. Not enough water lately? Shaded too much now? Let's see what happens next year.
The side beds are tired now, but there's enough here that I still love it:
I need to move the furniture about a bit, but I like having it here!
I hope you enjoyed these views!
