The next photo you can see a hint of the same Crepe Myrtle in the left corner. So these are both sides of the Crepe Myrtle although the house almost looks the same. If you really knew the lay of the land here you would swear I was hanging on by my claws to get these photos. I did try several different angles and best I remember I was standing in the middle of the road to get the first two. But I must have been on a ladder. :)
There are a couple of things I would like to point out. The color you see close to the house are gladiolus, calla lilies and daylilies. Also notice in the first photo, to the left of the Crepe Myrtle there is one tall lily. I will posting some photos of this lily at a later date. I bought it last year at the daylily festival.
There also is a daylily flowerbed in the back yard, at the edge of my deck. And this year we have added some dayliles to the opposite side of the driveway. Some of you might remember the driveway is lined with iris on both sides. The dayliles start right behind the iris. Click here to see my iris flowerbeds. The daylilies that were added on the other side of the driveway were transplanted from the back of the property. We still have not moved all the daylilies from their 'temporary' location they were given in 2005. When we moved them from the temporary location to the front they were not in bloom and that is why the flowerbeds are all colors just mixed together. Some of you have made comments about all the digging for the 15 new varieties. The hard work for it was done about a month ago. When we moved some more daylilies from the back Jimmy tilled the soil for those, plus enough room for the festival (he knows I will come back with plenty) and mulched it all. With all the rain we have had this spring the soil was still soft and the actual planting took about 30 minutes. Oh, and the dreaded 'Common Roadside Orange' has it's own flowerbed on the opposite corner of the front yard.
