I've been planning what needs to happen in my new back yard this spring and ran across these old photos from 1999.
1999 is the first year I gardened and the bug bit me fast! It became a passion. Finally, after many years, I can now start again.
This chair I built for the front porch. I did the artwork from drawings of flowers that where planted in the yard.
This was the front driveway bed. There where three elm trees that where removed (they where really bad off and had to come down). The bed is 30'x8'.
Once it started taking off......
Back yard bed with a tower trellis I built for the Niobe clematis I had planted around it with Miss Bateman.
I had Purple Cone flower, cosmos, white marigolds, lambs ear, and lavender planted around the base.
Dinnerplate Dahlia....I think it was called Thomas Edison.
Vegetable garden.....peppers, radishes, snap peas, and tomatoes.

I love the chair, you do good work!!
New back yards are always fun, aren't they. I am torn between loving the clean palette of a new yard with all its potential, and a yard filled with things I have planted over time.
This yard was near Dallas in Irving where my ex wife and I lived. We sold the house and the new owners dug up everything I planted....the front bed was ripped out and they paved it to make the driveway larger! I was sick!
Lovely chair, you're talented! Please show some more of your work. Your borders were nice too.
I enjoyed the tour of gardens past......White marigolds I presume? I never seen that before.. Mine was a cream color and buggy..
B, I think they where called snowdrift. They where kind of cream in the centers, but the out petals where bright white.
Beautiful artwork on that chair.
No....I've been known to weed at night......crazy I know, but when you can't sleep.....:-)
I am not sure how I missed this Buda but that chair and is to die for.The yard is fantastic.I can not think of anyone tearing out all those gorgeous flowers and plants.That a crime if not there should be a law against it. You do great paintings.
