Garden Tour - Dutchlady1

By Dutchlady1
June 17, 2012

I don't have a Garden; I have a third of an acre in an older part of Naples, Florida, which holds a house, a pool, and hundreds of plants, mostly Plumeria. After they first were stashed haphazardly here and there, wherever there was a space, I am slowly pulling it all together into a more coherent whole. As every gardener knows - this is a work in progress!

Hetty: I truly enjoyed this tour of your lovely gardens! After seeing photo's of your plumeria's etc. on some of the forums I knew your garden would be beautiful! It must be wonderful living in a part of Florida where you don't have to worry about awful winter freezes damaging or killing your plants! I've been in the NE part of the state for many years and for a long, long time we never had cold winters but the past three sure have made me wish I lived farther south! Smiling I admire you for getting rid of most (if not all) of the grass/lawn ... something I've wanted to do for years! Unfortunately my DH likes a green expanse of lawn but I've not totally given up on trying to convince him of a native/natural landscape!! Green Grin!

Thanks Lin!
