This corner of the garden is where I can usually be found most late afternoon, after a stressful day at work, usually with glass of wine or a stronger drink inhand. I love to sit there and take in the whole garden as the sun goes down, it recharges my batteries.
Today I had the day off from my 9 to 5 job, and decided to take back my Zen corner. The heliconias, banana trees and white bird of paradise needed some heavy trimming.
Some bromeliads do well in the shade, and this is a perfect spot for these Persimmons.
These bromeliads on the fence were cover by overgrown plants.
The old white bird of paradise plants are not very attractive, but the flowers are so tropical.
This weekend, I attended a local art show and came home with these two pieces, an ibis bird made of plastic tubes and a beautiful birdhouse. Some people might not consider these pieces art, but I do and so do the people that made them.
