This same front garden also contains a pond which can be seen and heard from the kitchen and upstairs bathroom windows. It is surrounded by creeping sedum in the front and tall phlox and purple coneflower in the background.
The lower, south facing portion of this garden changes with the seasons. This bed is filled with tulips, iris, and peonies in the spring and lilies in the summer. Now the annual zinnias are stealing the show along with the tall phlox and purple coneflower in the background.
This is the front porch (facing west) to my house. A side porch is on the far left (facing north) and the screened porch (facing south) is on the far right. I have flowers wrapped around the house from east to west. They are mix of perennials and annuals.
