Friday Field Trip Part 1

 

Friday we headed out to the Kansas City Master Gardener Tour.

Our first stop was at a home built in 1915.

 
The homeowners made the most of a
small plot. There were several shade
plants and Hostas plus a dry creek bed
was off to the north.

 

 
This lovely brick home was our second
stop and as you can see by the sign at the
top of of the steps "No photography" was
a loud.
This home also had a small garden area.
they used rain barrels along with a
dry creek bed. The hedges by the stairs
were immaculate.
One of the more interesting items in this
garden was the VERY LARGE "vase,"
carved from a the trunk of a palm tree
and imported from Hawaii!!

 
Stop three on the tour was at this cute
little number. It was built in1917 and
purchased from the original owner
after 75 years.


 
Ever turn had something to look at.
A gazing  ball peeks out of the grasses.

 
A different type of Clematis. Love the
"fuzzy" center.


 
The green ball moved around in
the water, so fun to watch.
This was fave house one.


 Stop number four.

 
This my friends is a large Agave plant.
We had never seen a plant like this! The
homeowner also had clippings in pots on
the front porch.

 
Another plant that I was not aware
of (where have I been) anyway this
is a Cone Hydrangea.

 
A winding path leads visitors to the
backyard and this pretty fountain.

 
Creative art added whimsy to the
landscape.

Rest your feet, we will continue
the tour soon.

~Keep on Dreaming~

  2. I would love to do something like this. Those houses are so charming and it's always fun to look at other people's gardens and get ideas.
