New House and empty yard......
We bought a new house in May 2007. It had the basic bed up front, but nothing else. So I am excited to have a blank canvas to get started on this spring and have many plans drawn up.
I managed to plant the Miss Bateman clematis just prior to actually moving in, and it has done very well blooming a second time right now. She is loaded with buds and blooms. I took the photo this morning which is my ID pic.
My yellow Brugmansia has dwindled down and stopped blooming with the colder weather we've had recently, so I am wintering it until after the cold months to come. We usually have a pretty cold February into March here in Texas. The top blooms at one time where 37 10" long fragrant blossoms...it was amazing. I can't wait until this year to see what it will produce.

What a great looking home, well done!
What a beautiful looking home and garden you have budagardener. I love both datura and brugmansias but they don't do well outside in our Scottish climate. I do have a variety of clematis though that do very well.
Congratulations on the purchase of your new home...it's very nice.
Looks great and what a nice clean slate to start from!!
Congrats on your new home!
Thanks everyone. The backyard is barren....I planted just one oak, two red tip phetonia and one butterfly bush in May, but waiting anxiously for spring for adding raised beds and a deck. I'll be posting photos as things progress and asking for advice I am sure!
Aren't you into palm trees down there.. They appear quite popular.. How about a few fruit trees??
There are not too many palms in my area bsewnsew that I have seen available.
