Your garden looks so tropical. I guess I didn't realize you were so far south. I see you found a way to use up some old tires.

Aiyana said...

Very pretty. I'm surprised to see your succulent tires are two tires tall. I had assumed they were one. Do you have one layer succulent tires too?

Your garden is beautiful. I also read your previous post about the family tea towels. What a wonderful idea. They are a real treasure.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Blessings,
Mary

howdy... my computer still isn't working right, so I'm on my friends laptop... just wanted to check in and sat these are really great pics... I really like the gloriosa lilies. Always wanted to grow them and never have...

What wonderful photos! What is the plant with the unusual orange flowers, 6th and 7th down? I love how you have made little rockeries in the old tyres, what a great idea!

Julie said...

Aiyana- I have 3 tire gardens that are three tires high, and two gardens that are two tires high...none that are only 1 tire high! I have had them arranged differently when they were vegetable gardens, prior to the sux, but since doing the succulents they have stayed as they are now!

Mooimadeit- those are called Gloriosa Lilies...they came to my yard on their own and have really spead ove the past few years! I just adore them!!!

Claude...if you can get your hands on just one plant...they spread over time so well!!!

Teri, Lisa, and Mary- Thanks!

Beautiful! Who knew you grew more than succulents!

Julie said...

Vickie- LOLOL!
My yard is like an overgrown jungle! I don't really "grow" things...they just sort of come to me! LOL. If I plant it and it survives, it gets to stick around, sort of thing!!! LOL.

Julie,
I think that if left to your own devices you could single-handedly save the rain forest. I must admit I'm very jealous of your back yard- what a paradise!!

I hope you are well!

Your garden is lovely, Julie! The one (vine?) with the white flowers...is that a jasmine? If so, I imagine you would get a beautiful fragrance from it.

LOVE your tyre gardens!

In our previous house, we had mock orange growing in front and back yards and, when it flowered, the beautiful fragrance went throughout the house...beautiful! It attracted a lot of bees too. :)

soulbrush said...

i love the use of the tyres..what a lovely place to love.

Julie said...

Serena- the white flowered thing is a jasmine...I want to say confederate jasmine...it has been about 12 years since my neighbor and I planted it alternating on each side of the fence...but we also added in a few other kinds of jasmine as well. Different parts of the fence bloom different times of the year! LOL.

Julie said...

Soul B- the tires have been flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and now the longest period of time...succulent gardens! They are kinda fun!!!

Love the tire succulent garden!

Julie - What is the crinklely orange looking lily? 'Cause I want it!

Julie said...
