When we planted our River Birch last year I set up an area for Hostas. They are gone now, Grizz Bear (Husky) and small animals ate them ALL!
We had a small area that got very wet from the A/C that is behind this fence area. I got some swamp grass from someone local on FreeCycle and dug out the area. Plant is right at home and no more puddle!
You can see a portion of the Pergola that my husband built in the back yard, gate to garden in the distance. I put some stones for a pathway to the gate.
We have had these banana palms for few years now. We cut them back every fall and cover them with mulch. They come back in the Spring. This picture was taken in June. We got a bud and baby bananas from it a couple of years ago when we had an especially warm long Spring and late Fall.
Our adopted Huskies love the shade from the Palm tree, they also eat the tender tips of the fronds! When we are not looking, some of the baby banana palms dissapear!
We have a gate in our back yard that goes into our secluded vegetable garden. I put a hayrack planter on the fence, one on each side of the gate.

I have a few clocks on my buffet unit that I use in my living room.
You will also see a lit shell tree near the picture, that is a creation made by Liz, who's site Tropic Designs is listed on this Blog.

Headboard wall detail.
Right side of headboard wall showing the room to Master Bath and Master Closet.
I loved this fabric by Donghia and decided I would use the elements for my hallway 1/2 bath project. I used my photoshop program to change the background color to a pale blue/green to see how it would look. It was a GO!
Then, (below) we put beadboard on the ceiling and changed out the lighting fixture. We painted the walls in the color I chose.
We then removed the toilet so I could draw and paint behind it and reinstalled it. The floor is hardwood. I wanted a pale blue/green for a background instead of the color on the original fabric inspiration.
