The Gardens in July Part Deux
The Non-Pool Garden one year later. The big planning and planting for impact turned out just as I had planned. The hydrangeas are splendid and love the new location.
NonPool Garden right side.
NonPool Garden left side. Conditions between the two sides of the path are quite different due to shade and trees so while both sides are similar they are not exacting images.
Looking from the Secret Patio to the north.
Another view of the hydrangeas.
Looking up toward the house at the right side of the NonPool Garden.
The Natural Garden has evolved into something different from what I had planned. Here we have a Japanese maple 'Bloodgood', Blackhaw viburnum, spicebush, several hostas, bouncing bets, mums, cannas, a hydrangea, toadlilies and Great Blue lobelias.
Another angle of the Natural Garden. The yellow hostas are a great pairing with the red Japanese maple and carry the garden even without blooms.
Looking toward the north and the NonPool Garden.
Looking toward the house past the Secret Patio and main patio to the deck and house.
Finally, a long shot of the Sunny Perennial Garden (right side) and Rear Center Garden (left side). There is not much color here now that the daylilies and spring bloomers have passed by but soon the asters and mums will be blooming and I'll have color. Until then I'm content to have green-because last year there was only dirt due to the severe drought. This year has been better but it is still a trying summer for gardens...
