Day one of Arlene's Garden.

For the next five days I'm going to be giving you a tour of my garden.

This rock wall was built for me in 1996 by my dad, Colin Burridge who lives in Bedford, England.

I love it because beside being very attractive it's easy to take care of. Many of the plants re-seed themselves every year.

Sometimes they don't stay on the wall but find another place, like this crack in the side-walk.

Some of the plants growing are roses, California Poppy, Lamium, Viola's, Columbine and Alysium, which will look lovely when it grows over the edge.

Brad and William put in a trellis for my new grape vine.

I put wire around the little vine to keep deer from snacking on it before it has the chance to grow.

Day Two of Arlene's Garden tomorrow.
