|Potted red Japanese maple (Acer) on our back steps, which are becoming nicely clothed in ivy. This was one of the first turf areas to be planted with ground cover.|
|Boston ferns are very welcome, as well as the ivy and sedum in the tiny area behind the porch. You can just see the Driveway garden by the sidewalk to the right.|
|Dwarf miscanthus grass, Miscanthus 'Dixieland', is definitely the favorite of the additions I made to the Driveway Garden last year.|
|The Front Woodland, which is actually our curb strip, is looking very well in spite of the limited rain this year. The daylilies have received their chop for the year and are very slowly regrowing.|
|Variegated Liriope lightens this area.|
|The curb strip on the other side is filling out quite nicely with its turf replacement plant, Sedum 'Acre'. It still needs to be weeded a bit more, but it was even more full of dandelions when it was just patchy turf. The grey mounds are the catmint, Nepeta 'Walker's Low'.|
Foliage is the key to gardening that lasts the test of the seasons.
