And now… the Backside
Happy Returns in the back gardens. Hope you saw the post on the front yard, GBBD in Niagara Falls.
Krinkled White, Peony on the East of the rear yard.
Supertunias, Royal Velvet and White on the East of the Rear Yard.
Superbena, Large Lilac Blue – You guessed it, a vigorous growing Verbena.
A view to the Southwest
Your tip of the day..
This image is what you would see looking out the dining room back door, through the screen. I intentionally left the screen visible to show you the actual view. Designing a garden space has as much to do with the inside as the outside. The goal is to achieve views that are pleasing to the eye. I framed the image to the left side of the door, but the path and focal point, raised bed, is on axis with the door, an intentional design decision. It works both inside and out. The door was not original to the home and was added when I did the kitchen/dining room renovation. It allowed easy entertaining options to the home. You can always create a view if there is not one to start. See how the view kinda looks like a magazine image (sans the screen of course)?
Now for the Sides…
Are We Yelling for Yellow?
Coronation Gold Yarrow
The sea of yellow on the West Side of the house and property.
Sedum, Goldmoss, right out the Kitchen back door in a tiny scree bed.
We got Yellow inside too! This is an East view too.
And not all is yellow…
Bell Flower on the East Side fence line.
Carnation on the West Side
Up next… The Niagara River native flowers. These flowers and view are at the end of my street, right across the Parkway. Then…next on GWGT… the Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore College. This is a beautiful set of gardens. We come back to 664 again for a peek inside. After…. a trip to Hawk Mountain and a few other images from Pennsylvania. Lots in store.
