Here's some pictures of a garden i just inherited with our new house. Just trying to figure out what I've got before making some changes next year. Any ideas are welcome.

What a peacefull space. You took a beautiful picture with the droplets on the peonie! Personally I wouldn't change the structure. I could vacation in that yard. It looks so relaxing.

I wish photobucket would show bigger pics...
#4/5 is one of the Tradescantias
#8/9 look like keepers! cute!
#10-14 peony - GREAT pics!

Incredible yard! I don't see a thing wrong with it but for my personal tastes, I would add more of yellow, purple, and variegated foliage.

I love it, too. The only thought I have - besides hoping for more pics this year - is to get something to cascade over some of the railroad ties. I also like the idea of more vibrant colors. I always love purples next to orange. The good old color wheel (not-quite) opposites.
