I have neglected my yard this season due to studying. But the hardwork for the last couple of years seems to be paying off!!!!!!!!

Beautiful. I love the fence color. I wish I have the courage to do that in my yard since.My husband does not like vivid colors.

Good gardening

Wow - looks great, Usha. I thought the HOA was giving you grief about your wall - you must've talked your way around them. Good job!

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.

Naw, they already beat me to that one... http://www.artbymolly.com/sitebuilder/images/The_Pink_Wall-600x371.jpg

I'm thinking perhaps a terracotta - same tone as yours, but lighter. DH wants white (*sigh*)

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 :)

How about white ( with parts of it terra cotta?) Then you can say "What? That wall is white."

Usha! You're undercover here as lovetropics! I wonder how many others have taken new names from what they had at the "other" place. I might know more than I think!

Your yard looks great and you still win the prize for the wildest wall color - love it!

Very nice! I love the wall color as well! S.O. and I are very into color... we have a deep purple and faux gold living room. I'm amazed that you can grow amaryllis outside here! Well done!

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.

I am with you Eileen. I am hoping to have the shrubs in that area grow large enough to cover the wall. It should happen this year.

Thanks LT... I have a shady spot! I haven't grown any bulbs outside in AZ, so do you plant in fall, as in colder climates? Any insight you could share would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Brenda,
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 are neighbors! We are at by dynamite and scottsdale rd. No, I didn't know about the gardening lectures. When and where are they held? Thanks again for the amaryllis info!

Brenda,
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.

Marie,
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.

Sharon,
Marie's daughter Julia and my daughter Deepa are best buds. They have been wanting a play date since the last swap. Hence my note to Marie.
