When you first enter the yard. On your left is rosemary, iris and four o'clocks. They meander around towards the swing. on he right. The tree is only about 3 years old. the old one blew over.
Below is a composite of 2 pics to show the length of the yard. Along the left side are the pyracantha bushes which are thorny and will have fluffy white flowers in a few weeks. In the fall, they are covered with tiny orange berries.
Just beyond them are the huge lilac bushes.
To the right are teh red tipped philos. They surround a small patio.
At the "Y" is a huge Butterfly bush..about 12' diameter and high,will be covered in brigth purple spikes soon. There is a larger patio abck there. you can see the chairs. I lay them down so the wind won't blow them. It's very peaceful and quiet back there. No one can see you.
