Our micro-yard has been in a constant state of evolution since 1977 when we expanded it into a slightly larger L-shape by enclosing the space between the houses. Found objects, stacked brick, stone, ceramic sculptures, bowling balls, marble slabs, a decaying plaster torso, and potted house plants make up our “lost ruins”. A slate walkway and patio is surrounded by raised flower beds and numerous planters. Our multi-tiered fish pond has undergone many changes over the years; there are now 7 falls of various sizes, and a long “river.” Within our flowerbeds, chaos reigns. Stargazer lillies put on an annual July show. Hanging planters abound. We have several rare potted scadoxus multiflorus, that bloom in late July with a spectacular globe of orange.
