Gardening in America
July  12,  2006, Yard and Landscape

by Nancy Fletcher

Cannas growing outside the glass off the backporch. This make a nice sunny place even up into the winter. A bit of warm sun here is nice for a brief nap, relief for Grammas who have aching tired feet and joints. Seems our backdoor gets used as much as the front so this is a nice entry way.

Barberry, Canna and Zennia bed will be more showy late in the season just before frost.

The new fence across the front is not finished but working. This heavy rubber like love seat wintered over last year,  very well. These wind chimes are not the clanking ones but rather have a clear bell tone and how did they manage to make them sound like a melody being played. It is a nice place for me to enjoy reading when and if I ever get a moment. I like to read to the children here, too. They are willing to stay because of the cars going by which gives them a moment of distraction

Crepe Myrtle is blooming profusely this year. The wild grape arbor behind creates another outdoor room. The tall Poplars behind the house are wonderful for shading the back porch.  We have a Mimosa that grew close to the grape vine arbor. I left it and may be sorry later but for the moment it is beginning to give some shade and is even blooming some this year.
