Are these the sort of wide shots you mean, Sweet thunder?
30'+ section of Front Yard Fence Row. The shrub is Corylus americana
(American Hazel). The bed to the right contains the nameless Rhubarb and two blueberries as well as some strawberries, borage, yarrow, and sedum, plus a volunteer ornamental gourd.
There's a gate and a gate arbor just to the right of the photo. Let's go inside, shall we?
Same fence from the back yard side. Gate arbor with Trumpet Honeysuckle. (7/2 update: Ruby-throated hummingbird(s?) have been visiting. I noticed about 3 days ago, and it/they have been coming around every day. I can see this arbor from my bedroom window
Typical seasonal schedule to have them arrive for the summer in beginning of July and stay around for daily visit until some time in late Sept. I did see a fly-through male in mid~late April during their Northward migration. Still trying, but not succeeding to get them to nest in or around my garden
I'm going to plant Blue Vine Milkweeds (grown from Biwa's seeds - thanks!) on the other side of the gate arbor. Just cleared the Japanese Honey suckle from there which was a volunteer that had a temporary reprieve until the native honeysuckle established. It was a home to a Robin's nest earlier this spring. 3 babies were successfully reared and fledged, but they didn't return for repeat -- I don't know if Robins do that like Mourning Doves and Cardinals or not.
The bird house on the Front Yard side -- which faces North -- isn't occupied (yet?), but a pair of House Wrens have moved into this one, so the Garden Patrol will continue. 2 Starkrimson Rhubarb, a Royal Black hot pepper, and a couple of Borage as well as a volunteer curcurbit of some sort (to be ID'd) along the first fence panel. Kiwi Gold Raspberries are along the 2nd fence panel.
Here's the Robin's nest:
Pan to the right and you'll see the Old Sunflower House garden, the Hayflake/Modified Haybale New Sauce Tomato Bed beyond, and the Espaliers against the fence.
Same fence from further back with the Yellow Crookneck in the foreground. Bamboo stakes will support spillover heirloom tomatoes, also in the Sunny Meadow Garden. A row of Green Cotton beyond the Yellow Crookneck. I also planted a Giant Orange Bell pepper somewhere in there....
... and from even further back. The Carolina Gold Rice Paddy, which will henceforth be the Native Bog Garden, is to the right of the photo in the corner of the last fence panels. You can barely see the mulched spot at the right edge of the frame where I planted the Viburnum trilobum
(American Cranberry Bush):
There! A nickel tour of this part of my garden.
