You could grow sweat peas in a hanging basket as they trail ok. ;)

I bought these two pots ten years ago,they cost me almost a whole weeks living loot, and I have grown lilies in them every year. The last three years I did not look after them. So this year I planted

A year has passed, it's summer again, and we've all managed to avoid getting shot by crazed deer hunters in day glow orange vests. Birds are singing and flowers are blooming. Which brings me to the

Thought you all might like to have a walk up to my place and a quick look into the garden.Starting only a couple of hundred yards away from the cabin on the farm track, any further back and you do not see the cabin.

There is a low range sonic device that will keep small animals etc. outside your perimeter. It might be handy to have one on a time switch.

But if there is a dog or cat in residence they will not be happy

.

Lion poop also works . Friendly zoologist or a passing circus.

Afraid chipmunks, which I love although they can be unintentionally destructive, would not like it either.

What are the tall yellow and red plants right outside the window? Look like some kind of lily? Very attractive.

Yup lilies. Two types, one all yellow and the other is yellow and red.The yellow and red ones were smuggled in from Latvia by some relatives for me dad and I keep them to remind me of him. No scent though which is a shame. B)

For ebrke a close up of the lilies.Me dad got the lilies in 1994 and I have had them growing in the same pot since 2000.

A fushcia that cost £1 this spring, doubt if it is hardy. An as me garden seems to live in an alternative universe I have no idea if the plant will get much bigger. It should do but it has not grown much in 6 weeks or so.The picture does not do it justice but I was too lazy to use a tripod.

An a lonely begonia called Apple Blossom cost £1. it should be surrounded by masses of other flowers but fate decreed otherwise.

In southern California we have no flowers. Just astroturf where we want to have some green space.

You must have some flowers growing locally. I remember miles and miles of sunflowers when I was in that part of the states. :biggrin:

You live in the English countryside, is that right? Very nice setting, you are lucky in some ways.

When I see such an idylic location I think 'flowers' but also 'radio antennas'. The Brits who

live in towns have rather small gardens. Very challenging to find enough room to string some

antenna wires in those circumstances. That's why I'd never live in a city, I like some elbow room.

Beautiful flowers, mate! I'll post a few shots of our flowers here 'shortly'...

Topic? How very quaint. :w00tx100:

 

Here is my backyard:

Got huge lilac trees, no longer in bloom, obviously. Buildings (and trees) date to late 1920s / early & mid 1930s. Birches are higher than the (6-7 storey) buildings.

If ever I arrive in the USA .I will set up a chain link fencing business. There must be more chainlink there than all the rest of the world combined.

 

Are they apple trees ?

There are apple trees in Florida (northern part of the State), but not many. It's too hot for them down here.

 

That little stretch of chain link fence is about 45 years old. It's only a short run on my east side. The rest of my backyard is encircled with concrete block fencing that is even older. I'm not sure why my father never got around to completing the concrete fence on that side. The neighbor over there is a nice old Cuban lady. She's no trouble.

 

This is a pic of my backyard facing the other direction...

Yup. Fence desperately needs painting. :yes:
