This is the view looking at our deck from the pathway that surrounds the pond. You can see all the wonderful things we have planted. As far as edibles, we have an artichoke plant, a lemon, lime and even an orange tree. Unfortunately, the poor orange tree (on the far right) is struggling to survive after all of the rain we've received this winter. I hope it pulls through since we've had it for 6 years and the past few seasons it's produced amazing oranges. We then have two hibiscus' (the really tall thing in the middle is a red one, and behind the orange tree you can see, but we have a yellow one), four gardenia plants (in the long boxes up front, they are about to bloom I believe. Yes Mom, if you're reading this, I'm sorry. I know you're allergic). Then we have a mix of flowers and other plants.
This is a closer pic of our lemon tree. Look at the size of our lemons! LOL I can't wait until they ripen so we can make fresh lemonade and use them in tiki drinks.
This is the ledge outside our kitchen window. Don't you just love the tulips? To the left of those are cute little flowers for the hundreds of hummingbirds we have in the area. If you look closely through the window, you can see the huge jug of white distilled vinegar. I must have been dyeing yarn while I took this picture! LOL
