My Begonias and yellow daylily in their new home. on the right side of my porch- towards the animals.
One of my ferns on the animal side- most daylight.
The left side of the porch holds another fern and a hanging basket
Close-up of the hanging basket has more Begonias and pink pansies
This is at 10 in the morning and you can see there is already a good bit of shade towards the back where the ivy is growing. Does anything else grow in this much shade? I am going to try to get a few bushes or something to bring in some color and height back here. Everything we have only really is out during the spring/summer. I need some things to carry us into fall and winter.
Up from there in the front of the porch on the left side of the steps are mostly hostas and a few other flowering plants. This section gets a bit more sunlight but not much after noon.
Another shot of that front left side. The planter holds some strawberries. And there is a small bush behind it.
Standing at the steps looking to the left this is what you see.
Now from the steps looking on the front right side is again mostly hostas, some flowers, a grapevine that sprung up on its own. We will be putting some lattice to close off under the steps.
Looking further to the right of the steps. It doesn't look too bad. It will look better once it starts flowering but again. Need something for fall/winter. This side gets almost full sun all day. The sun rises on this side and goes diagonally over the house from here.
Directly to the right here is some periwinkle which is doing very well. The window here is to our bedroom. I would love to open our windows some nights but hubby is afraid someone will climb in. So I am thinking of some prickly shrubbery. Any ideas?
Directly beside the porch is our blueberry bush and some flowering plants.
