We're back! Back in the back garden in 2019 that is. Yesterday we took a look at the front garden (here), now we've stepped through the gate and are confronted with plants. Lots of plants! It's a jungle back here...
A little color from the NOID crocosmia and canna.
The moss in my lawn has gone dormant, hence the odd coloration. I keep thinking I'll overseed in the spring or fall (whenever it is that you're supposed to do such a thing), but I never seem to get around to it.
A shot looking west, at the sunken patio, you'll be able to better see the 2-ft or so drop down in a later photo.
The summer shade pavilion, which becomes a winter greenhouse (read all about that here).
Looking back at the entrance...
And north, to the side of the neighbor's garage.
Taking this shot I'm standing just in front of the chair in the above photo.
Another look at bromeliad-land (I'm facing south) and the side of our garage.
And finally it's time to step down onto the patio...
...and check out all those containers!
The carnivorous collection, well, part of them.
Behind the large Agave ovatifolia 'Frosty Blue' is the stock tank pond. I didn't get a good shot showing it.
Looking towards the back of the house, which you can't possibly see...
Clifford, the big-leaf magnolia is getting huge. I guess Sammy (the Yucca rostrata 'Sapphire Skies') is too.
The shade pavilion, I'm looking south now.
The fern bowl and bromeliad dish, both newly planted up when this photo was taken.
The shady area behind our garage...
And a final look down at the patio. Here's to summer! And time hopefully spent here with friends... (fingers crossed)...
