Back in April my goal was to move the Kaffir Lilies from the entrance in the front yard to the bedroom garden where the environment is more pleasing to them. Unlike most projects I was able to cross this one off my list within reasonable time (2 months). When I did the big planting in the frontyard I moved the Kaffirs to make room for drought tolerant plants.
The Kaffirs went to the bedroom garden where it's bright but shaded most of the day. This spot is now getting watered twice as much as any other part on our property. While we were in Florida I realized I actually missed the lush tropical landscape. It's probably why I've always had a vision for the view from our bedroom to be green and in some ways tropical.
The bedroom garden that once looked like this over a year ago:
Now looks like this:
From inside it looks amazing, specially in the morning. It also smells amazing. The ground cover is a plant that smells like wine barrels. I like to open up all the windows and air out our bedroom after everyone is and at 'em. That wine barrel smell is so wonderful as it floats in and cleans out the "sleepy air".
I have no idea what the big leafy plant is. I got it for free off of Craig's list, along with the ferns and the other lily. I still want a fountain and some stepping stones to make this area perfect.
