The last owner of our new house was retired and liked her time in the garden. She has an interesting mix of stuff - roses, irises, garlic, kumquats, a variety of trees and my favorite fried egg flowers! The latter hasn't bloomed yet, but you can be sure I will be there with my iPhone when they do! Here are some snapshots of wilderness from the yards:
Also, our dogs LOVE running around the backyard. It's been awhile since they've been able to do that. I think my favorite part is when Melo jumps into a patch of plants and rolls around. My least favorite part is when she jumps into the fountain of still, green water.
