Bones’ garden 2007
These are not full-resolution photos, but I didn't want to shrink them down too much – if you're having trouble seeing the whole picture without scrolling there are two things you can do:
- The best thing you can do is to increase your video resolution: right-click on a blank space on your desktop screen, select "Properties", click on the "Settings" tab, and adjust the "Screen resolution" slider
- If you can almost see the whole pictures in the Cincybones homepage frame, you can open the photo page by itself, outside the frame, by right-clicking on the "Bones' Garden" link, and selecting "Open in New Window"

Cliome and Rudbeckia flowers - little yellow cinquefoils in the background have red leaves in early months
Redid this corner this year (2007), look down the page to see how huge this colocasia got
See what I mean? It needed lots of water just to stay alive in this drought year
Every time a leaf died, a newer, bigger one grew
Another redo, this narrow strip on either side of the faucet is now mostly herbs
The other side of the faucet
Closeup of the other side
The fence along the north side of the backyard gets the most sun
The fenceline trees to the west block the evening light –
– as you can see from the deck
the early sun hits this area just fine
Love those cannas!
You would probably be surprised how many of these plants are in containers

A neighbor again
the front of the house
I call these the dinner-plate hibiscus
And then there’s the Chinese hibiscus; spends winter indoors
Here's the Chinese hibiscus close to the time I'm posting this page, March, 2008 – but now I'm getting ahead of myself . . .
