No photos of indoors just yet as some things are just not ready and I haven't had time to take photos. Also still deciding on exactly what to put where.
But here are some more photos of the back yard. Remember, our yard is only 20 feet measuring from the back porch or deck, then as the land slopes down to the creek that becomes the park's property.
Looking to the right. Creek very low, but no mosquitoes!
Looking to the left. No mosquitoes but lots of frogs ! They serenade us each night. One fruit tree far left. Creek in background. Large trees not ours. The small leafy green tree in the center is a New Zealand Christmas Tree. I am researching this one. We have three and I am not hearing good things about them especially about their root system. They do apparently bloom in the summer, so that's why the former owners planted them. If any bloggers have any info about them I would be so happy to hear it.
Same view but from further back. Two fruit trees, center.
Further back still. Third fruit tree has leaves. White flowers to the left are petunias in a small flower bed. Creek almost hidden down the slope.
Looking from the right towards the deck. Think that is another fruit tree with bare branches at the back. That is a Royal Robe Potato Vine just peeking round the back of the deck. It needs a little care -- perhaps more water and Miracle Grow. Ours, at the last house, just bloomed and bloomed, so we are hoping this one will thicken out and become healthier.
View from the deck.
The ice plant is in full bloom as you can see. The fruit trees (3 or 4) are just beginning to bloom. Can't remember which is which, but there is at least one pear tree and one fig tree. We have been able to sit out on the deck (back porch) for a cup of tea for several afternoons. The weather has been in the upper 60's so we could have sat out there more often, but have just been too busy.
Well that is the end of the tour of our 20x40' (just guessing) back yard. We love it!
Back again soon, as soon as I can catch my breath.
