This post is really just a bunch of interim pictures while the gardens fill out. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and can't wait to see how they continue to evolve over the summer. The Welcome bed in front still looks mostly the same so no new pics of that one.
The Fiesta Garden
We've gotten two peppers out of this garden already and have cherry tomatoes on the move. But the best part right now is the pop of color that greets you.
The contents of the big pot:
Dwarf sunflowers, Lantana, a coleus, a tomatillo and peppers:
A side long view as you come up the drive:
The White Garden
Looking back down the drive-see how it kind of mimics the garden on the other side of the concrete divider?
White Gaura and gardenia with some little vinca annuals are mirrors of the Gardenia, Pink Gaura and cream colored Knock out roses on the other side:
Buddlei and Nicotiana withThyme, Shasta Daisies, Gaura, and Yarrow:
Iris, Lavender, Artemisia, Cosma, Penta:
And in the sunshine:
Lychnis, Sage, Iris, Chives, and dwarf Gardenia:
Hydrangea, variegated Thyme, lambsear and a little Scabiosa pulled from the Welcome Garden early on:
