This is the back view of my home with the desert coming right up to our back yard…so hence the oasis in the desert theme. But...just this week we turned it into a secret garden!
I am so excited to have a new wall around my fairly new garden. We kept the back open to our fabulous wetland/sage steppe view.
So come take a look around, you are an invited guest...things are still growing, but give this garden just a few more years and it will be a bit of Eden...right here in our backyard.
This is looking out from the back porch
Turning south from the porch you can see my new wall. Now you must envision roses filling the tops of the arbors...
Just a bit closer now...
This is looking down the south side wall to the front of the street
Now we are looking at the north side of my porch, at our eating nook window
This is looking back out to the desert from this gardenlooking north east you can see our garden shed and behind the roses a bit of the potager
there is my north wall
I have lilies coming up in this bed
The front of my house, with the courtyard
here is a closer look at some of my plants
the penstemons were amazing this year
and this is what I do with some of my blooms
But the best thing growing in my garden this year...
Is Puddin Toe's my first grandchild!
The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer to God's heart in the garden
Than anywhere else on earth
