THE BACK GARDEN

The backyard continues to be a place of rest and relaxation. The vision of it being a Sanctuary is finally coming of age. Here are some pictures taken this Spring. Enjoy~

The back yard area will not be a "period" garden, but will reflect the tastes of the owners Miranda and Diana. This will be a comfortable and welcoming place for guests to relax, unwind and recharge.

Bit by bit we are trasforming the backyard into a private garden santuary. A special thanks to our friends Gary & Michael for their generous giftings of orphan plants (which are quite happy in their new home).

The side yard will be split up into two areas. The front section (nearest the front of the house) will eventually be a driveway, while the section from next to the side porch through to the back, will be the vegetable garden area. We're not worrying too much about this area as it sits pretty low on our priority list. We've planted a very nice veggie garden in the area and are using the "driveway" area as a construction zone.
