31 Days of Garden Tours - Day 21

Today's post is about the xeriscape garden at the home of Dan and Ann Powell of Merritt Island, Florida.  I wasn't sure of the meaning of xeriscape, so I looked it up:  a style of landscape design requiring little or no irrigation or other maintenance.  I aboslutely love this garden because it has enough green and flowering plants to make me happy.  There is so much to see, and I took so many photos, that I'm going to do two posts about it.  

This is the front yard and porch of the Powell home.  

This is the first area as you enter the gate to the backyard.  They have a large collection of bromiliads, and a cute vignette of a tiny village, complete with a lighthouse.

The yellow shed holds the lawn equipment.  I love the window treatment, and have to make one like it.  Remember, this is coastal Florida.

Here in Florida, we love our flamingos. Yes, I have them in my yard, too.

The chair, turned flower pot holder, is made of driftwood.

The fish are made of bicycle chains
I love the idea of having an art gallery along the fence. (Another thing I'll add to our garden.)  And I love the painted door.

We've arrived at the back end of the yard, and the pond area.  I'll show that to you tomorrow, along with the covered deck, back porch, and a couple of other sweet surprises.  I hope you'll come back by and see more of this couple's creative ideas in their garden.

Blessings to you, Gail-Friends!
