Photohunt: Average


Average house - unaverage garden

This week's Photohunt theme is average. This was extremely difficult for me. This week is the Seattle Flower and Garden Show and the weather has been very spring-like here in the Pacific Northwest of the US. So I have gardening on the mind.

Here is a picture of our average suburban house - with an un-suburban un-average garden. Many of our neighbors have lawn and evergreen shrubs. We've made our average house different by digging out the lawn and putting in lots of plants instead. Wonderful in June when this picture was taken - but a devil to weed.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

A lovely photo! I also do the same with my yard-- flower beds. I dislike the "average" shrubs and swaths of lawn.

have a great weekend.

Your garden is beautiful and above average, for sure. Love what you've done with it. Great take on this difficult theme!


Wow, your garden looks very exotic! :)

Beautiful flowers! WAY above average!

Oh, but what a gorgeous garden! Who wants average when you can have that?

The house may be average, but the garden sure isn't.

Beautiful garden, Marta.

Your garden in gorgeous. I think a beautiful garden matters more than the house. At least that's my priorities. Great take on the theme.

So colorful!

Wow, Marta - not so average! Quite beautiful and original. m

In the summer I have to mow the lawn an average of every five days. I hate that. I really enjoyed your very above average take on this difficult theme.

Funny how average for ome person is pretty incredible for another!

Have a great weekend Marta!

You have without doubt in our mind done the very right thing with your back-yard.
It's so inviting

To the left og your climbing Roses, I propose: Grapes.
And it's even room for some tomatoes and paprika (Mild Chili).

Thanks everyone. Gardening is fun because it changes from year to year. Crocus are in bloom and I can't wait for spring.

Gorgeous garden!
