This is the second post in my garden series to celebrate one year in the blogosphere. Today I will take you on a journey of the front garden.
In front of my house is a strip of land. It wraps around three sides of the lawn, the fourth side being the road that leads to the house. I call it the front garden, because this what I see when I walk out the front door. This is the part of our property that was almost completely destroyed by a tornado in 1990, so most of what you see has been planted since then. Once upon a time these shrubs and trees were tiny dots!
Here are seasonal photos taken across the lawn, standing on a walkway which runs between the house and the front garden:
These shots were taken from the road, viewing the front garden on the opposite side of the lawn:
Next we come to the entrance to the main part of the front garden, which is directly across the lawn from the house. This wooded area has paths meandering through that connect to the lawn in several places. There is also a path which leads to a larger trail that ultimately takes one to the lady garden. My gardens are interconnected so I can wander from area to area. I do that a lot, often with a cup of coffee in hand and, of course, my camera around my neck. So here are some images I captured of this part of the front garden over the past year.
First is the entrance to the front garden:
These photos look at the front garden from an upper corner near to the road:
From the opposite direction, here are views taken from the back side, looking towards the road:
And finally, here is the path which can take one to the lady garden:
I thank you all for your support, and I hope you have enjoyed the tour. Check back soon. There is more to come! Deborah
