Front Yard


Pam at Digging asked for a picture of the front yard berm area. This is actually a picture my husband took to prove to our homeowner's association that we do actually cut the grass once every week. The backside of the berm has Asian jasmine (at least, that's what I think it is), and the front part has some Easter lilies that the previous owner planted in it. (Also, the tree that looks like it's in the berm isn't, it's about 10' behind it.

We have planted Lantana plants in it; we first planted two purple plants, but one died, so I planted two white plants in it last year which have come back this year. We also have some wildflowers growing there right now too. And since this is one of the well drained areas that gets full sun, I planted some watermelon seeds out there this year.

That's a pretty big berm. Growing watermelons on it sounds like a fun thing to do! Will the neighbors tut-tut, or will you have them over for a seed-spitting contest?
