Papa’s World – bringing color to the back yard with Crepe Myrtles and Oleander bushes.

I wanted color back here – the builder planted white Crepe Myrtles out front – these are WATERMELLON!
We also replaced all the Pine Straw and moved it to the tree line where we had three Oleanders put in!

They are young plants and hoping they will take hold – watering them everyday – but next year they should bloom

a bright RED againest the back drop of the protected tree line.

The second Crepe Myrtle – all trees in the yard now have stone and brick or edging depending where they are. The ones next to the house are mulched in black and serve as a contrast to the light gray siding.

A quiet neighborhood – but already a man rang the doorbell trying to sell home securtiy!

We are slowly putting in flowers that will come back year to year – hoping to make this area wild but colorful!
This will be a on going work in progress – adding a little bit here and there!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – I planted Crepe Myrtles – beautiful !

I guess it must of been 8 to 10 years ago –

We bought three Crepe Myrtles – about three feet tall –

I had to dig the holes on my knees with a garden scoop –

because of the large amount of ROCKS in the ground !

Good morning !

Yesterday as we walked back to the house –

I realized just how beautiful they are –

and the one out front was the last to bloom !

Sherry pointing at the red flowers

Our house sits on the corner – the other two are in the back –

and they always bloom first.

But this one on the corner – with the green in the background –

just catches your eye when you come up the street.

Positive thinking

We are truly blessed – as we really like where we live –

We talk about moving further South-

But we have been here for 13 years !

The front porch

Over those 13 years – I have planted everything – all the bushes –

The large trees I did not –

And 95 % comes back each year.

Tunnel of trees

We installed a irrigation system two years ago –

after years and years of me dragging hoses around –

It has been a lifesaver –

Most of the lawns are burnt up and brown –

with all the heat and Sun and no rain.

We made this our home

When we moved in – our house was the only one here –

Everything else was built later and we watched it all being done.

Today – they still have a couple more years of building.

They will open the third High School in September –

And our community has been named

as one of the top 25 in the country !

Front yard

Today we are retired –

Living near our grand kids –

But I still cherish my yard – trees – flowers and plants –

They have become a part of who I am –

Funny – but I enjoy seeing them grow and change !

The opposite view from the side

One day we will pack up and leave it all behind –

But – until that time comes –

I will always look as we are coming home –

seeing the green – reds and yellows –

knowing that we did that –

living my life one day at a time!

along with ever greens I planted

Papa’s World – the new home landscaped – irrigation in and trees planted!

In a few days we will close and be in!

The landscape is done – I am not a fan of pine needles instead of mulch – but we had no choice –

May be one of the first things we change!

But – here are two Crepe Myrtles on either side of the house –

plus a live oak tree in the front!

Here is my favorite – front porch – covered and in shade most of the day!

I am a front porch sitter – talking to people as they walk by –

this is one of the main reasons we choose this elevation –

plus the fact we could convert the dining room into a enclosed office space with french doors!

The back of the house – master bedroom to the left – open patio center and the covered enclosed lanai.

We will have a portable fire pit out here with furniture – and it was suggested to maybe a retractable awning!

The lawn runs to the treeline – which will not be cut down – and these will be the only houses you will see on the other side! This is a protected area – can not even touch the tree already down.

We have a decent sized yard – and since we sold all our yard work tools – we will contract out the mowing!

Inside the covered lanai looking out – first thing to go will be the pine needles!
The protected tree line to the right of the house.
Looking straight into the woods from the open patio!

We are happy with the back yard and the way it slopes into the woods. Drainage will not be a problem.

We are in a no flood zone here and 54 feet above sea level.

The ICW is straight East from here 2 to 3 miles away.

If a Hurricane does present itself – we will leave and go inland or to our friends.

Papa’s World – our patio – a quiet place to think !

The patio – is about 400 S.F. – very quiet and private –

almost too much for me – I prefer the front porch !

Good morning

Now Sherry loves this area – for that reason –

but I like to people watch – car watch – see what is happening !

Looking outside from inside

There is this tree – bush that we have had for years and years !

It is a Crepe Myrtle –

and has two colors – pink and purple !

It stays in that pot – even through the Winter !

The only things we do is water and nutrient it !!!!!

CREPE MYRTLE

It is too heave for me to pick up anymore –

so I just slide it to where ever she wants it !

Sitting and flowers

Most times – I head for the front porch until the Sun drives me out !

Sherry likes this area

and will set up her computer and work from out there.

Sherry’s spot

This in the Spring – Summer and Fall is her office on nice days.

And when we have guests – or dinner- we will be out here.

Sometimes it gets too hot

Now there are times during the heat wave –

I will wash the slate down to cool it off –

as it will burn the bottom of you bare feet !

I had just washed it all down

Sherry picked out and planted all the flowers

I plant outside in the beds and we both do the big pots outside.

The patio is in a U shape and is protected on three sides by the house

with the fence and gate covering the rest of it !

Our little peaceful quiet refuge

This is but just another facet of our daily living-
