Like all good things, this series must come to an end…
Part 3 of the Big Crazy Bohemian Garden.
The greenhouse. It’s pretty killer. It has an ingenious self-watering system, and a deep koi pond on the North side that functions as a heat sink in the Winter. The Koi are crazy huge, sorry it was too dark to get any pictures of them. You know I wanted to snatch that Japanese eggplant right off the vine…
What garden is complete without a couple Pink Flamingos?
Another great recycling idea, old plastic Halloween “Witch’s cauldrons” painted blue and used as planters…
And of course, there are chickens. 5 feathery friends, providing breakfast for all. I especially like the art and fancy glass hanging light in the chicken coop.
And now, on to the Front Yard. No lawns here at the Smyth Abode. Hardy strawberries take the place of grass beautifully, and provide delicious berries!
I love the mannequin on the front porch, no doubt reclaimed from the ArtSmyth Mask Shop.
There’s an amazing Wisteria on the front gate. (We’ll have to get a shot of it in bloom next year) Great Idea Alert: She has strung wire from the fence to the second story balcony on which the vines are growing. Natural shade!
The fence on the North side of the house is covered in blackberries and roses, a beautiful combination.
And last but not least, a large mirror in the front side yard reflects a pair of plant-covered deer. Charming!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this delightful garden tour as much as I have. Until next time, Happy Planting!
