When we moved into our current home just over 7 years ago, there was absolutely no landscaping - no flower beds, no shrubs, and no trees near the house - 'unspoiled' in realtor terms. It sat on an open piece of land, surrounded by at least 30m/100' of grass on all sides. Over time we've put in the 2 ponds, created flower beds, planted trees - primarily birches by the pond, and maples in the yard - and added shrubs and flowers.
Some of the perennials we bought about 4-5 years ago were asiatic lilies, of various colours. Since the birches by the pond have basically claimed that area as their own, the lilies we planted there need to be moved to a new area this fall. However, the ones at the front of the house have grown from single stem potted plants to large clumps - I suspect I'll have to split them this year. The ones in today's shot are nearing their full glory and bring beautiful colour for us to enjoy as we sit on the front porch. When I made some photos earlier this evening I had Eva Cassidy's version of 'Fields of Gold' playing in my head (even though the song refers to barley fields) - if you're not familiar with it, have a listen - I think you'll like it.
