Garden Party---6

 

We have arrived at our last
garden on this tour. I hope
that you have enjoyed our
journey.

As the sign says "Come into
the garden..."Shall we? I say
let's go!


 

A garden greeter.


 

As we rounded the corner to
the backyard, I saw this out
of the corner of my eye and
it just cracked me up! Such
beautiful colors too.

garden fairy


 

fun! So cute.


 

Wouldn't you like to see this
from your screened in porch?


 

This beauty is called Lantana--
it is a butterfly drawer. I liked
it so much I had to get some
for our house.


 

Taking a break amongst
the pretty purple flowers.


 

I almost missed this! It was tucked
up on a small hill--so pretty.


 

This looks like a big
puff ball with the
purple flowers.


 

Of course! I had to take this
picture. How many fairies
do you get  to see playing
on a swing?




The fairy hangout behind
the swing.


A little bit about this garden.

It was built to accommodate the
physical challenges of the lady
gardener, issues with the soil
and making sure that the butter-
flies and other insects had an
environment that met their
needs.

The home itself is located in
a Villa community in order to
take advantage of the grounds
services provided by the home's
association.

Recommendations from the lady
gardener if one is dealing with
physical limitations:

Raised beds--for sitting and
less bending.
Stone stairways--making a hill-
side easier to navigate.
Decorative finials along the
stairs--making the stairs safer.

Garden made easy for those
with limits!


Next week we will be viewing
a new garden so .... stay tuned!

P.S. Welcome to my new
Followers!

      A lot of thought was put into making
      the garden accessible and eye pleasing
      to visitors.
