The sun is out and I am LOVING it!
I took a few pictures of our newly landscaped front beds and thought I would share them. Of course I realize you can't really get the full effect from these pictures but you'll get the general idea.
I actually took a few pictures of the many, many small craters that have been left behind by my furry friends with the cute outfits but a picture just couldn't do them justice so I'm not including them. After all, if you can't get the true look and feel of their artwork you might not fully appreciate it.
So take a look at this beautiful Japanese Maple. I LOVE the color of the leaves and wish they would stay throughout the fall and winter but I know they won't. Four Dwarf Nandina circle the tree. The tall whispy plant to the right of the maple is a Castiron plant. In the very back corner is a Japanese Aralia. It is very pretty but I couldn't seem to get a good shot of it.
This is the view of the right front bed from the center walkway. The four bushes under the windows are Encore Azaleas. There are three more under a separate set of windows on the left side of the walkway. The Azaleas will bloom in both the spring and fall and will add some much needed color to the front of the house.
Also sprinkled through this area are Cream de Mint, Dwarf Day Lilly, Bearded Iris, Monkey Grass and Petunias.
This is a view of the left front bed from the center walk way. The Azalea are the bushes under the bay window. The bushes under the far set of windows are Wheelers Dwarf Tobira. There are also Cream de Mint, Dwarf Day Lilly, Bearded Iris, Monkey Grass and Petunias along this area.
The Wheelers Dwarf Tobira is a low growing shrub.
The tall tree in the corner is a Yew. I was not familiar with this particular tree but it is very whispy and I think I'm going to like it. Four Dwarf Nandina circle the Yew.
In the coming weeks our new beds will take on the look of fall...
a wonderful mixture of color and texture...
the Pecan trees will begin to lose their leaves as a result of the crispy night air...
the yard will be covered in a golden blanket...
the perfect playground for a squirrel.
