Society Garlic and Beyond
My phone's camera is terrible about shadows and always makes too much contrast. I could probably fix the settings somehow...
Beyond the pond, you can see the tire planters for each kiddo with spring bulbs about to bloom (bought on clearance just a couple months ago, yay I guess they weren't dead!). Then the pallet "bridge" which leads to the ramshackle scrap wood pergola I hastily threw together with some help (it won't matter what it looks like once the newly planted yellow Lady Banks rose engulfs it). Then, to the right, a rebar teepee with young Joseph's Coat climbing rose. And, finally, the blue/purple wall, which is the ever-increasingly-ruined Mexican Ruins area. It featured a slightly broken chiminea, little pots on the turquoise shelf (a bunk bed ladder) with sedums, a neat little tiled pot with a red yucca, etc. The wind has blown the wall down twice and smashed everything, so I just keep rearranging what's left and trying to better secure the wall. I needed some kind of solid wall against the back chain link, to close in the space and be a focal point. It's just simple scrap fence panel pieces from a friend. I'm hoping that spot will explode with color in summer with the Joseph's Coat, another reddish climbing rose on the wall, and various lantanas tucked everywhere.
Thanks for looking!
