My friend Sue's gardens in DeLand

DeLand, FL(Zone 9b)

I have mentioned sharing Sue's gardens in the past. Today was perfect for photos with the overcast skies. It is early in the season and it is amazing what she already has going on!

In two months the place will look completely different!

The German Black-eyed Susans are special with their strong hints of orange. Looking forward to seeds...

These are side and back shots. What a collection of plants!

Her husband Lew built all the trellis', arbors, and created the pathways. They are a blessed and talented duo...

...and the roof of the gazebo is an old satellite dish!

Just a few more pics...

...that is the most unusual pink Poinsetta I have ever seen in my life, and am determined to be one of the first to share something special and get a cutting as it develops.......Ha!

I get so inspired looking at these pics. One day I'll have an "organized" garden to show off!!! I'm in the "thrilled it grows and blooms" phase of FL gardening.
Still looking at the pile of plants I obtained over the weekend and wondering where, oh where, is it best to put them. Need to remember to pick up 2 trellis so I can give a couple vines a place to "start".

Thank you Jean. Happy gardening!

I can see why you wanted to share Sue's garden with us, just spectacular. I love it. And that Poinsettia is fabulous. Love the way they re-purposed items into the garden, especially the satellite dish, got to show my DH that one.

Wasn't that Poisettia something though...I've never seen anyone like it before. It will be a while before I get a cutting from that one. Ha!

I'm glad you took a tour and liked it Sherri. Thank you,

David
