Here are some pictures from Ciscoe's garden. His garden definitely matched his enthusiastic personality!
The "hellstrip" surrounding his corner lot was all planted with a mix of perennials, shrubs and fruit trees.
This summer Eryingiums have become a new favorite of mine. I'm still looking for one that gets such a nice blue color. When the Littlest Gardener saw this picture she said, "Hey, that's Sea Holly!"
Lots of colorful foliage and textures throughout his garden.
Someone pointed out that each of the apples had been wrapped to protect them.
Lots and lots of Cacti filled the driveway, many were in bloom. They are overwintered in the garage.
This was one of my favorite pieces of garden art. These metal bats were hanging from the pergola rafters. Now I want one for my garden!
This was the view from the patio under the pergola. The large trunk to the right is from an old Wisteria. In this corner is a water feature along with lots of really interesting plants.
Part of the water feature.
A flower bed in the back garden. Meeting Ciscoe in person was a pleasure. You could just tell how much he loves gardening and the joy he gets from sharing his knowledge with other gardeners. It was the same joy that I felt when talking with the other garden bloggers that day.
