I love nature, so I have tried to keep my garden as natural as possible, and I am so rewarded by animals, butterflied and so on. It requires a lot of watering since it is under oak trees, and is raised. I will post more pics as we progress with this venture. I have a pile of limbs to one side in the garden, which attracts Carolina Wrens and ocassionally a snake, but hey, they gotta live too, although I am glad when they move on. I have planted Hosta, Ferns, and in the sunny spot Cleoms, which I have come to love.There is also Coral Bells and Jacob's Ladder. I even had some Zinnias to enjoy. For the fall color there are Nandina, and Japanise Maples. There is a small sitting area (swing) next to a bird bath. and lovely statues of maidens, owls, even a cat lying under a fern.
