Our GREEN Surfaces


This picture looks washed out on a gray morning. Our green walls look much more attractive than they do here at this moment. We have wonderful privacy and coolness from tall trellises on either side of the deck and the top of the poor beaten up shed (it has been through the wars .. I think the vine keeps it standing !) .. water barrel on this side of the garden makes things easier .. of course you have to have rain to make that really work .. and we have been lucky so far.
The Autumn colour is simply AMAZING with this Engelmann Ivy. Scarlets .. reds .. oranges .. dark blue berries for the birds .. a paradise ... for all of us to enjoy : )
