I have been outdoors more since the humidity has not arrived here yet! Some of the perennials that I have planted last year have grown and I have added some more to add some beauty to the back yard!
My yard has been a challenge to us, we are not sure what we are plans are. For instance, we have tried to grown grass but with no luck. There is too much shade in the yard for a garden, although we did have tree arborist come in and prune them. We have an Water Oak tree that I would love to have removed, however it is not permitted within our county unless tree has a disease. Since the tree has been trimmed back some, I do however have some more light filtering through my yard now.
|Here is the Water Oak that I would love to have removed|
My dream is to have raised beds and a walkway from our patio to the back picket gate. (I have started some inspiration photos on Pinterest that I will share with you soon!)
Let's take a look at some of my flowers around my yard now:
I planted some Confederate Jasmine last year however the plant above was just recently added. I am getting anxious to see how it takes off soon! I think it will be beautiful once they all start to climb my picket fence! My neighbor down the alley has a full fence of it and it looks wonderful!
Here are some plants near my garage. This is also a shaded area so I have to be selective on what I plant here. The name of it is Lime Zinger Elephant Ear. I will take more photos during the summer months of this so you can see how much it spreads.
Here is a pic of my Meyer Lemon Tree, so far no lemons! UGH! The tree however looks healthy and I actually had beautiful white blooms on it earlier in April.......Need to do some more research on this!!!
|One of my favorites - Hydrangea|
I will be sharing more once they are in bloom. What flowers do you have growing in your yard/garden?
Thanks for visiting! Hope you are enjoying the month of June so far!
