31 Days of Garden Tours - Day 12

Today, I'll continue with the tour of Becky's garden.  You can see the first part of her yard HERE

The picture above is at the far right side of the back yard, at the end of the pool.  Becky has some beautiful yard art, and I particularly liked this angel.

Just to the left of the angel is a beautiful patio area, sheltered by a bougainvillea covered wooden trellis. The patio has a pizza oven as well as a regular over.  Can you imagine cooking and eating in this lovely spot?

I love those twinkle lights and the trim on the trellis.  So pretty.

The plant pictured directly above is the trunk of the bougainvillea plant.  Bougainvillea is abundant in this area, and I always enjoy seeing the different colors.  We have fuscia, light pink, white, coral and purple varieties. The flowers bloom most of the year here on the coast.  It is beautiful, but has vicious thorns that can really scratch if you're not careful.

Another wall in the trellis area, with a sweet little fountain and hanging candle holders.  Becky's husband did all of the tile work here, too.  You can see more of his handiwork in the previous post.  

My son-in-law and grandson enjoyed taking a break to play tic-tac-toe in the shade.  Becky painted the ladybugs, too.  Looks like the little one is winning.

Here's a little peek into the next section of Becky's garden.  I'll show you that next week.  But before we go, here are a few more lovelies from the trellis area.

Brilliant crotons

Exotic bromiliads - wonderful, but they hold water and breed mosquitos.

Bleeding hearts - I love them (but not the liberal kind).  That's a joke, Gail-Friends.  I hope you laughed out loud.  Tomorrow, I'll be showing you Becky's potting area.  You will love it, so be sure to stop by.  


This is a partial re-post from 2014.  I hope you don't mind, as I'm going to have to take a short break from posting.  The posts for 10/8 through 10/13 will be previous postings, but you don't want to miss them, so be sure to stop by every day. I'll be posting my most recent pond tour visits beginning October 14.

Blessings to you, Gail-Friends.
