The near back garden

As I've mentioned several times this summer, I've ignored the garden for the most part. Somehow things have snapped into place though, and this part of the garden (made up of the driveway and beds closest to the house) is looking quite nice.

There is still a lot of "junk" on the driveway -- I have lots of projects in the works -- and those two pallets that I've been wondering what to do with? They made a nice little "fence" that hides the mess and gives me a place to put more plants. I envy the people who have fences and garden walls to use as backdrops.


These plants have suffered a bit through the dry, hot summer...

...but at least it looks like I tried!

The furniture tests have been arranged into a seating area:

If you visit though you probably won't want to sit down, as there is much jungle to explore even close to the house:

The maypop vine is fantastic as always:

I forget how wonderful these blooms smell until the cooler temperatures arrive and we can open the windows.

It's a good thing plants do their thing without much help!

You have so many interesting places to explore I doubt I would want to sit down although you have created a welcoming seating area. Nice bamboo. And I love your pallet fence. Makes a great backdrop for your plants. When we were in Italy this year I saw pallets being used at a side walk cafe. They were hinged together so they could fold and had a planting area on the top. Also some used on walls with hanging plants.

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the turtle sleeps tonight...Your garden is looking great. We're always our own worst critics. Winter will come, clean it all up and you'll have another season to give more time to your jungle. Gardens are quite forgiving.
