Capone, the Boston Terrier, is the trooper who guards the pond.
Behind the Persicaria are glass art tiles.
The Magellan Zinnias were started indoors from seed and are all around the pond in a variety of colors.
We are on our way out to the front of the house with plantings and vintage milk pails flanking the side door.
Birdhouses have been added to the front planters.
The original pond posting is at the bottom of this blog (2011) with subsequent ones last year, and 2012.
