We do have other plants in our (brugland) yard. We take brug photos daily for the website and snap the other stuff as well, folks have asked to see them so I will try to post some, hope you enjoy.

Daylily (the dogs ate the label)

Bandana Lantana


Rain Lily(they bloom after it rains, we are nine inches below normal so I think I must have hit him with the hose while watering brugs)

Get the shovels ready! I want every stone and the pump too! Chop chop!

A couple more in the garden... The first is the top portion of the stream and falls. I will try to get a current shot today of the bottom stretch, it turns right and goes to the koi pond. I will have to try to find the shot of this backyard when we moved in .. there was nothing......it was on the computer and the hard drive crashed. We have a hard copy somewhere. Anyway.. The next photo is the trunk of the Kwanzan Cherry. The winter was mild so the Creeping fig didnt burn back and I just love the look. The variegated hydrangias around the base have begun to bloom as well.

Thanks all, a lot went in to it, most say work but when you love plants and being creative, its not work ...just satisfaction with a newly created project, or a fresh blossum. Patricia (Brugsincr) will continue to post... there is more to see....come on down Yollie and come on over Mike .. plenty of brugs to sniff..
