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:

  1. 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
  2. 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"


  3. the stone koala guardin’ the garden with cauliflower-leaf hat



    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



    Another view of the monster colocasia



    A visitor



    A neighbor



    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 . . .
