Hi all! I thought I'd give you all a look through my 7.5 acres in the middle of no where in South Georgia!

When you first start to make your way to the end of the 2 mile driveway, this area is what greets you, full of old and overflowing flowers

Close up to the left, petunias and creeping jenny - sunpatiens and giant plume ginger are there to welcome you in

Close up to the right, the old camellia tree that still blooms bright and lady fern offer shade on the hot summer days

As you walk inside, an old but vibrant Rose of Sharon waves hello

Make your way through the palms and hostas

And past the girliest garden shed you've ever seen

You'll have to make your way past many random beds, beckoning for you to come sit a while, as you make your way up to the house

Like the perennial wild flower bed, can we even find the bench in there!?

Lilies of all kinds, there used to be rock seating in there as well...

The purple wisteria that has over taken trees, reaching 30 or more feet into the sky.

Sweet peas and morning glories will signal that you're nearing the front porch, if you can see it yet.

We're almost there now, do you need to take a break? There's a lot to see from this spot in the yard....

Like the hidden ginger

The last thing you'll see as we cross the front porch to head inside for air-conditioner and sweet iced tea is the container garden on the porch and all the hanging baskets

Hope you enjoyed seeing everything! I love being able to share things in my gardens with other, so if you ever see anything you'd like to have and try out in your own - just let me know! I'm always willing to share/trade seeds, clippings, even some rooted things of pretty much anything that I have.
