|The Front Garden in December|
The lantana is flowering again, even though a few leaves have been damaged by the 38F nights we've had:
The euryops is flowering, too:
The aloe plants are sending up flower stalks which will open up to display orange colored flowers:

The Asparagus Sprengeri ferns are doing well, too:

That makes it a year of monthly photos taken of the front garden!
And, today's photo:
A year in the life of the front garden! Mostly subtle changes except in the spring when the flowers were blooming.
M brought me two bags of pebbles for the front parkway, today; two different types, one bag with bigger, smoother pebbles and one bag with slightly smaller, rougher pebbles. I prefer the smaller ones, I think. We will buy more bags of them in January and work on that in the new year.
Hope you enjoyed seeing how my front garden did during this year, with the on-going drought and increased water restrictions.
What do you think? Should I continue to take and post monthly photos in 2023, too?
My vote is yes do take monthly photos of your garden - you'll be surprised how much in changes year to year! The asparagus ferns are very lush.ReplyDelete
Yes, gardens do change from year to year, don't they? I think I shall continue to take the photos; I like having that visual record to look back on! :)Delete
Seeing your garden in time lapse was interesting. Subtle changes, maybe, but you can see the drier months. I vote for you to continue the pictures because I always enjoy looking at plants.ReplyDelete
Spring is when the garden is at its best and by October, it is done! Thank you, June; I think I will continue to take the pictures next year, too. :)Delete
Your garden is lovely all year round! The changes as the year cycles through are very clear. It might be interesting to compare next year to this past one.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Celie. You can really see when we had rain and when we didn't, can't you? I will continue to take and post photos next year, too. :)Delete
Your garden is looking good, lots of new growth and flowers. It's the exact opposite of mine which is looking very sorry for itself.ReplyDelete
Yes please to continuing with your monthly garden photos in 2023. I'm planning to keep going with mine. xx
Thank you, Eileen. You've had snow and frost to contend with; it's hard for plants to thrive when it is so cold. But, come spring, you'll have a lovely garden, again.Delete
Yes, I will continue with the photos in 2023. :)
I love seeing photos of your garden. You have such interesting and beautiful plants!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bushlady. I hope to post some pictures of the back yard, too, before the year is out. :)Delete
I agree, I think it would be interesting to carry on taking monthly photos. If you wanted to vary it, you could always choose a different view/aspect.ReplyDelete
BTW Your front is looking very neat and tidy!
Thank you, Lady Ella. I think a change in the viewpoint might be a good idea! Maybe from the other side of the garden, looking towards the driveway. :)Delete
Yes! Continue the photos in 2023. I really enjoy seeing your garden especially during the winter months when everything here is covered with snow.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sharon. I like seeing your snowy pictures, but, I will continue to post pictures of my mostly evergreen garden! :)Delete
I've really enjoyed this project that you did this year. It's amazing the difference between October and December thanks to the rain you've received.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Debra. The garden responds so well to receiving sufficient water!Delete
I loved seeing your garden at different times!ReplyDelete
Wow, never seen that Aloe flower before!
Thank you, Kezzie. The aloe flower stalk will open up and there will be orange colored flowers that the hummingbirds love. I will take some photos of the flowers when then bloom. :)Delete
