The main feature of this vignette is the bamboo.
So green, it saves my gardening soul during the long winter months:
One plant alone does not make a view though, and what makes this view so great has nothing to do with me or my garden. My neighbors have inadvertently improved this view...
...with the addition of some new deck supports, and a new fence. I love all of the strong vertical lines!
The fence actually belongs to the house two down from me, but has created a backdrop that has never existed before (as well as diverting deer traffic into new patterns).
The magnolia next door is still so great, a contrast to the bare branches that abound, also to the fine texture of the bamboo foliage.
The vertical lines are emphasized by my own efforts...
...and work so well with the horizontal lines of the siding. All of these lines make the foliage so much more effective I think. (That discarded Christmas tree shows me that some sort of planting would be really nice here -- I'll see if I can convince them...)
