It's been a while since I posted a picture of my front garden - I was trying to do it every week. And while I have been taking pictures (mostly), I haven't been posting them because, well, they got a little boring!
Here is the garden back in July (07/24/2012):
|07/24/2012 Front Garden - before the real heat of summer|
|09/09/2012 - After the first few heat waves, and several prolonged absences|
Some of the plants under the window have started to grow in:
|A clump of glads and iris, pink muhly and society garlic...|
So obviously some changes are needed! And October is coming, which means I'll be able to do a little planting when it's less hot. Here are some things I'm considering, based on what has worked in the back gardens:
|Purple fountain grass, Optunia and a Coreopsis (badly in need of dead-heading)|
And then there is this whole area:
Some of these changes will have to wait until Spring, when more plants are available and the weather is nicer, but next year it should all look a lot nicer... and Winter will be spent planning!
