Our Endless Drive

Postby Patricia » Thu May 17, 2007 10:23 am

Image Image Image Have decided to post yet another entry...our gravel driveway in this section is hedged on the right with Buxux Microphylla V Japonica ( Japanese Box)...taking years to reach any height...but it also struggles for sunlight...the crepe myrtles to the right make a spectacular sight when in flower & give me some wonderful mulch in Autumn!!! The variegated (sic) vine growing over the fence on the left hand side of pic is from my neighbours garden ...I'm not sure of the name ..(hoping someone can identify from the thumbnails)..I rather like it as it is a slow grower & remains very compact... :lol:

Thee...have you been listening to us through the walls. :shock: .hubby always tells me he likes the canopy effect of the trees...calls it his "tunnel of love" (just joking of course)...we are forever having a battle of wits over the overhanging trees as I am always attacking the branches with the saw...I treasure the paintwork on the car & don't really want scratches all over it!!
