A panorama of the front lawn inside the driveway loop.
We hung a new flag yesterday on the anniversary of the Monkeyman's death.
He gave us a flagpole and flag for Christmas one year.
Near the highway along the north drive. I do not plant in the right of way.
What used to be a ditch is now a swale. Grass is thin because of the recent drought.
From center of the front looking northeast, same bed as above.
The Upper Garden is behind the tree line and beyond it the fruit trees and okra patch.
Toward the southeast. Flowerbed where I make the butterfly photos is at far right behind stones.
Things are always going in and out of bloom. The rain kicked the alternanthera into growth.
When I look at my own pics I can see where more plants are needed. I have two darker
alternanthera to go in that space in front of the light colored stone.
Here's the obligatory butterfly video made this morning before the lawn was mowed.
Tigers are back.
Here's the view coming from the house.
Sticks and all -- I didn't sweep the driveway. But you're looking at the new flag and the dogwood I grew from a seedling and the woods across the road where my FIL used to grow hogs and the crape myrtles that grew from twigs and the pattern that shadows make on the lawn.
