I just found this thread, thanks to neko's post--it appeared under new posts.

Neko, your garden is beautiful. I've always wanted a walkway like yours; they add a wonderful sense of motion and anticipation of what's to come.

Nekochan is gorgeous!!

Why, thank you, Diane. Nekochan's name indicates how dear she is to my wife and me.
Nekochan's housemate is Mitsu,who has no desire to go outside,and is equally beautiful.
as for the plant photos, I'm trying to present them in a contextual manner to show the evolution of a suburban yard into a garden. My primary inspiration comes from feature articles in Horticulture and Fine Gardening magazines. the ultimate goal is mass plantings,or drifts,of perennials with a smattering of annuals to attract butterflies and hummingbirds,with shrubbery serving as backdrop and framing. A modest goal,really,considering budget,energy and time limitations. But it's so satisfying.

Am looking forward to your inputs.

Thanks to Craven de Kere I can now finally post a photo.
It is Blue Morning Glory climbing up the front post of our home.

Have you considered tulips in big pots (or barrels), Neko?
They do look lovely in that photo.

I like morning glory too, Ruach...

I once had a rented studio that shared a backyard with a lot of other buildings, and in that backyard were the stacked pieces of marble from a church from Spain (our landlord being an antique dealer)...
In back of the stacked marble was a shack with tin roof, and all over the shack and the stacked marble...yes, morning glories abloom.

My patio pots are occupied by mums and fleurettes,Osso; it's the being sidelined with this darned cast
that's so vexing. The tulips have to go,anyway; the plan was to take them to a new home down the
street as payment for some native plants. I just wonder if they'll look so nice come spring,as they are two years old in the picture. I find that tulips become crowded quickly when grown in beds. They grow nicely up front in a natural setting.

Ossobucco - she climbs well but unfortunately doesn't have much scent. But she does well in shade and gets very little black spot so is useful.

Hepaticas add a welcome bit of color while the border is still dormant. Hostas take over after they leave the scene

This little spot is located in the shade of a sugar mapletree,as of last spring. Shown are daffodils,heartleaf bergenia,and maidenhair fern. Second year for these plants -- I anticipate the need to lift and divide here this year.
