Fred from on high - Updated
I did a count of the plants I have in the back yard. There are 100+ varities with many of them being in multiplies, like the Canna, Snapdragons, Iris, etc. that brings the total up to almost 300 out there.
Now you know why I am working on getting the front garden made, I am literally out of room out back. :)
Randy got up on the roof for updated pictures of Fred this afternoon. He had taken pictures of the same areas just almost exactly two years ago, for comparison you can check out the others here.
The cucumber trellis is bare so far, I just hope I didn't wait too long to get the seedlings in the ground, the Fig tree that has gotten huge, my pots of Okra and Blackeyed Peas along the mulch path and the birthmonth garden in the upper left.
A little to the right, assorted plants and the covered patio.
Just a tad more to the right to catch the arbor that is oh so slowly being covered by a Carolina Jessamine.
Still going to the right, now you can see the so far hidden area under the really large Hackberry tree I have changed my mind a couple of time about what I am going to do with that area, it still just sits there.
Also the picket fence with the Iris in front and all sorts of cuties hanging from it.
Don't look at the mess, sorta rearranging the bloom house and some things haven't been relocated yet.
This one is from a little further up the roof and over a tad. You can see the back fence with the fence panel trellis and the Canna bed at the corner of the house.

Wow, that is a wonderful garden!! So lush and full. I would love to walk thru there an just stop and look and smell. Sorry Toni, but I don't think I would ever make it to the front yard for a while,,lol. That is amazing. I could really relax there and just connect with the growth of that area. Thank you for sharing your most stunning garden!!
Your garden is lovely, and such a change in only two years! The blooms are so colourful and your patio area looks ever so inviting. Give yourself a mighty pat on the back from me, you've done well. I see you've managed to paint the shed too. ;)
I've watched Fred grow over the last two years Toni and can now fully appreciate all the hard work you've put into making him look soooo good. Your garden is a real credit to you and, Like Biita, I'd love to wander and take in all that lovely planting and catch the scent of your flowers wafting around. Well done!!
Looks like a vibrant space that's cozy and comfortable. You did a great job of fitting in a lot in a little space. The only thing missing are the cocktails (or coffee if you prefer!)?
Wow!!!!!! toni I just love your garden.You have everything going for you girl .Fed is a handsome area.
Toni, your garden is a master piece. Don't know how you keep up with everything. It looks awesome and I'll bet it sure smells good.
The growth has been amazing Toni, such an lush abundance compared with two years back. Thanks for posting the updated photos.
Thanks for liking my garden.
Great space Toni! I like the comparison pics. You've been working hard. It sure does look like a great place to grad a cup of (something) and hang out for a while. Thanks for sharing it with us. Enjoy!
