Hi from Zone 8bZone 9. When I think Gardening, I think of the above topics...
But my landscape has many other wonders all year round! I have many Camelias (red, white, pink, varigated, simple, compound, double compound) in the winter time, Azaleas in the spring, and sweet smelling gardenia in the warm seasons. My property is covered with oak, pine, pecan, maple, walnut, and citrus trees. I have wonderful boxwood hedges leading up to my front door, Lagustrums border the south side of my vegetable garden.
The centerpiece of my front yard is a huge Magnolia, one of 3 in my landscape.
My driveway is lined with Camelia, the carport/parking area has a wonderful border of Crepe Myrtle which flower most of the year.
As time moves forward, I seem to want more edibles in the landscape, so I hope to plant some blueberries, more citrus, figs(perhaps). Unfortunately though I have 4 nut trees, I never see a single nut due to the thriving squirrel population.
Thanks for visiting my profile page!
