I like the Saguaro with the starry sky.

Stunning Succulents (a must see)

Sentient, I also am curious about your chicken wire design.  Are those cloths pins holding it together?

Sentient-  I like your chicken wire design.  What did you use for the frame?  It looks like PVC.  The deer are lovely too.  I know they are a nuisance to gardeners, but they are still so wonderful to see.  Where I live, I have to outsmart the squirrels to harvest before they do.

Chris there is a small woods and creek there. Much is farm and hoses on 2 to 5 acres.

Joan betwen the deer rabbits moles and mice, there is still a lot to lears for me about how to garden in the presence of wildlife. The birdsong is wonderful. Several hummingbids feeding on buckeye nectar.

Those irises are mainly old and ancient varieties in their first year here. They are interplanted with chamomile oregano thyme chives creeping rosemary and so far animals leave them alone. Cant wait to go there on Saturday. have to get through today first!

Beautiful photos! Looks like rabbits will have a challenge getting into the strawberries. Lovely iris in bloom. Mine are still in tight bud. The deer look as though they have some plan in mind to get to the tasty stuff. Do they bother Iris? My daughter and cousin tell me that deer eat everything the nursery says are deer proof.

Have you got a wood behind your house, Sentient?

Comment by Sentient Biped on May 16, 2013 at 9:07pm

Why my strawberry plants lost all of their leaves.  And are now in a chicken wire cage.

 

Biggest damn rabbits I've ever seen. Lots of nutrition in those strawberry leaves.

Annie, it's mainly irises.  Probably 99% of their business, although when they open the iris gardens for visitors during bloom season, they selll other stuff.  In fact, I have enough irises in by yard, but I did buy a Weigelia.  Deer resistant, nectar for honey bees, and drought resistant.  I'm guessing much of their other stuff is heritage varieties from what they grow in the show garden.

Wow!  The laburnums are amazing.  You wrote that this is a private business.  Do they sell Irises, or is it a private botanical garden of sorts?  It looks incredible.

It's good to be anti-Islam
