I have been absent from the blog for a bit because our family took a trip to Walt Disney World. We spent a few days visiting all the parks, meeting characters and riding rides. Our favorite park was Epcot and traveling around the world, but James loved Magic Kingdom.
Disney does a wonderful job transporting you to each destination with the use the landscape and plants. Below are some snap shot
Agave americana and Aloe
Bamboo fence and Liriope
Vignette of planters at the Italian pavilion at Epot
Hundreds of ornamental Kale planted under olive trees
Dry creek bed lined with Liriope
I am not sure what this is but I am working on it..can anyone help?
Tons of tropical texture
Ah...takes me back to Versailles
Massive 5'+ Agave americana! So beautiful...
While searching some older magazines I came across this image of a Italian courtyard.The garden is located outside Milan Italy and does not look like a typical Italian (Tuscan) garden. I am an advocate for covering garden walls/homes with ivy and climbers to provide additional interest to your garden. Here are some details if you like this look and would like to recreate with the same plants (plus a few tips).
