I was lucky enough to have my daylily club( Greater Cincinnati Daylily and Hosta Society) tour my garden ( and two other city lot gardens) this past weekend. The daylilies were past peak bloom but my club members were amazed at how we packed our gardening into small lots. I thought it might be nice to share a few pictures with my NGA friends too.

Awesome piece of work! Thumbs up

Love the brick work on your porch and the vintage awning is icing on the cake! I know the highlight is the plantings but...

Lisa I am highly impressed, thanks for the show!

Time to brew a pot of coffee and wait for a couple of daylilies to open up before I start my day... Whistling

Just stunning! Very nice of you to share! It is great to see how many plants can be fit into a garden. Excellent planning. I think your hydrangea is gorgeous. I like it's color, here I mainly just see blue ones. I know it's the soil pH. I am really going go back and look at your daylilies. I think your soil is fascinating too! But most importantly it looks like a happy calm oasis! A place you would want to call home and share with people.
Many blessings for your continued success at home and school! May you have many successes as you continue to enrich the lives of others!

I don't know, it came with the house 18 years ago. I do not do anything to it but my compost pile is right beside it.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Lisa, you must be very proud because it shows in your gardens.
My wife (Marilyn) and I live in a small apartment in Maine that belongs to my son. It is a former farm that he purchased 5 acres of. Although there is a ton of land but we can only manage a small area for garden.
I have to admit that Marilyn is much adept at plant arranging then I am. She's the brains and I am the labor. This a picture of small garden outside the door.

Lisa,
Your garden is fabulous! I loved your virtual tour, and really enjoyed seeing the variety of plants and methods of planting that you have managed to include in your city lot. I particularly liked all of your succulents in the various pots. They were fascinating. Mind you, the daylilies were absolutely gorgeous, and they all look so healthy and happy Smiling Everything looked just lovely and as others have said, a beautiful, green oasis in the city Thumbs up

Chuck,
You and Marilyn have a beautiful little garden oasis, too!

Chuck - What a wonderful living arrangement you have with your son! I think you and your wife have created a lovely garden paradise and keeping it small is soooo much easier to manage than a large garden!
