Pagan, She cleverly painted the top part (that showed from the street) the same color as her house. I really like the effect. Gives kind of an oceany feel. I've seen many painted walls but this is a first time for dual colors and is a really good idea as it breaks up a large solid area.
what a waste... when I was in Flagstaff for college I painted my living room purple... I decided that life is too short to use white and beige... so my fiance and I painted his house and used color... it was half his idea too... I was impressed :)
Kathleen--when we moved to Dave's forum--there was a thread that listed the new names of the members. Sometimes I recognize the yard in the pictures and then figure out that the member has changed the name.
Brenda--amaryllis need some shade but they are doing well in the ground without any drip system. I hardly water them even in the summer.
you can plant them anytime in the ground but try to leave a part of the top of the bulb outside the soil. I also have lots of pack rats in my yard that eat up lots of plants. They ate up the leaves of my 3 bulbs. I am surprised to see bloom on this one.
PS: we must be neighbors---I live by jomax and scottsdale rd. Do you ever go to the gardening lectures up in carefree?
we live very close. We should try to get together sometime. Are you attending the get together this coming saturday? May be we can car pool?
The lectures are at carefree town center--one saturday all morning once a month. They start in fall and finish in spring. They ended their series for this season. They are free. They have them on their website. when I get the info for the fall---I will keep you in mind.
my yard looks worse now due to bad freeze. I lost the tree(silver wattle!?) and plants have not recovered yet. But the paint(2 coats) still looks great.
I would prefer to see you and Julia in the yard.
