~ Monday ~ Corners a Little Path Out Back

Paths in the garden always attract my attention, especially when you can't quite see where they are going. The area by the fence gets lots of shade, now anyway. It was all full sun years ago, but I kept adding things to finally get some shade. Perfect for some of those very tropicals that like shady. I just moved the hydrangeas over here too, and I think they will like it much better. This is kind of a secret garden area. Very lush and tropical but you can't quite see it unless you go over this little path to the longer one. I'll take a picture of it and show you.
The tree with the pothos growing up it was here and one of the Australian tree ferns, and the varigated Snow Queen hibiscus. I love the plant and the name. We just added the soil and planted almost everything else.
Sweet husband is back to work, but sweet daughter is taking the day off so we are going shopping. First time in a while since she works so much.
Hope you all have a great day. See you later!
Donna

  8. You and I are so much alike. I love garden paths, and "hidden areas", too. My mother had a landscaped architect come to her garden club when I was little, and as part of his presentation, he redesigned my parents' yard. He included a pathway that was partially hidden by boxwood hedges. That was always my favorite place to play, and I'm still fascinated with the prospect of places unseen today.

    Your garden is so beautiful, and I'm enjoying seeing it develop, too!

    Love,

    Andrea

  12. Oh, what lovely photos you have! I jumped over from Back Porch Musings. I was responding to her post on Door County, which is my annual Summer vacation spot too, so I had to post some pictures. Anyway, you have such a wonderful garden and I LOVE your front porch! Blessings...
