Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Six Months Later

Before I started to plant my 25' deep by 120' long backyard I snapped a few photos. In that photo, the plants I had brought with me were staged around the areas where they were to be planted. This is the main walkway through the center of the garden.

This is the same area, just opposite the large oak pictured in the photo above - looking in the opposite direction.

This area is in the backyard near the south sideyard. It is my sunny perennial bed.

It's amazing how quickly a bunch of potted plants can turn into a garden.

It all looks wonderful! Before and after pictures are always so fascinating.

Enjoy your new place inside and out for many years to come. It will only get better.

Susan, your garden has come a long way in just a short time and it's beautiful!!! Your plants did very well to survive the transplant! And I love your path, I might have to copy you on that (and that is the sincerest form of flattery) :)

What an inspiration. I'm moving to a new house soon. I hope I can get my new garden going nearly as well as yours.

Wow! What a difference! I love to see progress. I'm sure that you are glad that you took before and after pictures.

Wow, what a transformation! It's so neat to see how bare it was before and how lush and beautiful it is now. I love your curving stone walkways and your patio.
