This is a little seating area in the street-side border in front of the house. I placed the bench here so people walking by could sit and relax for a bit; it is amazing how many times I come out and see someone sitting here enjoying the day. You can see my wonderful stone pillars which are original to the house and the stone wall my husband built...he jokingly called it, 'Adrienne's Wall', a play on words after the famous Hadrian's Wall in England.
But what really captures your eye this time of year is the blooming Loropetalum, 'Sizzlin' Pink'. It's pretty fringe-like flowers last for quite a few weeks and and are followed by burgundy foliage that adds interest to the area just about all year long. Next to bloom here...pink climbing roses. As you can tell I love all shades of pink in the garden!
