Today, I am sharing front yard border photos from the last nine blog years.

Some years have subtle changes, but I try most years to change up the junk and some of the flowers too.

 Terracotta pots on the stepladder in 2012.  Annuals outnumber the perennial plants.

2013

 More perennials were added in 2013, and the red monarda has become my favorite.

The stool made a return in the border with lantana and zinnias.

This is the first season I added Benary zinnias to the border.

2016 was the first year of my wire basket cloche of Nasturiums.  The basket kept them somewhat contained.

In 2019, I repainted the "Garden of Weed'n" sign with "Bed and Breakfast".

I planted a morning glory in a laundry tub with an obelisk trellis.  It was a bomb.  Very few blooms.

The view of the border is beautiful behind these old tubs.

The bright color provided by the lilies is over, and a few of the annuals have slowed down a bit in this late July border.

  1. Beautiful tour, Carlene! I'm always amazed that you get so much height. That ladder is such a neat trick to use too!

    I can't even pick which year I adore most... they are all magnificent!

  2. I do the same with my flowers, Carlene. I take pictures every year throughout the summer months, and this year I've started a gardening journal, with pictures and notes about what's doing well and what problems I incur. Taking notes for new flowers to add next year.
