[Back Yard in November]

A Change of Seasons...



The Garden Through the Seasons

This page may change in the future, but I wanted to put up some photos of parts of the garden taken at different times through the year. There are gaps on some areas and too many pictures of others, but I think you'll enjoy the contrasts and the idea that there can be something happening in your garden no matter what time of year...different color schemes, plant types, seasonal color, structure provided by permanent shrubs or garden accessories, etc. There are certainly more sterling examples out there than what you'll see in my yard, but I submit what I have. You'll even note, that sometimes the garden looks pretty awful! :-)
