I went off half cocked and concentrated on my front yard and garden. By the time I realised I was on the wrong track, it was too late to take photos in town. Not literally, there was still time but by then the rain was bucketing down.
So I'm back to my own front yard. I think of the semi enclosed part of the front of the house as the yard with a bit of a garden. Even the "garden" part is open to interpretation.
I think of the house as being in the front yard of the mountain and when it came to establishing a garden, I wanted a Barely Contained Wilderness that would sit naturally in its environment. No straight lines or sharp edges, no neat rows.
I like it all to be as natural as possible, so that there is nothing to distract from those lovely mountains.
In summer I like a bit of pretty colour and grow a few flowers in boxes and pots. I think of them as the added extras. This summer I had a petunia I really liked. Who knows what I'll feel like next summer.
I wonder what the rest of the Friday My Town Shoot Out team will have to show us of the yards or gardens in their town. I'll be checking them out here.
