The Front Garden

This is part of the front garden. As you can see that huge plant in front is the teeny tiny black bamboo from China. 6 years and didn't grow an inch!!!!! Guess the sandy soil here at the shore was what it was waiting for.

I'm still having trouble with the arbor plants. That yellow climbing rose is 3 years old, and it's not really growing tall....But it has nice blooms. I was hoping it would cover the arbor in a year or two's time, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen..... So I'm going to get some Honeysuckle and plant that to grow over the arbor. Lets hope that works. LOL
