My World # 51

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive.



What do you do if you don't like to cut the grass and you like flowering bushes. Why you change your lawn into a Rhododendron garden.

This is a house across town in Kent, Ohio that I took this Spring. The place always looks quite beautiful at this time of the year. These people have no lawn to cut in the summer. The plants have become quite large.
There garage is around the back of the house and you can see the complete lawn is covered with trees or flower.


Go and visit some other worlds and see what they show.

Carver said...

That's my kind of place. Beautiful bushes and so natural looking.

Louise said...

I've never seen such a profusion of such bushes not in the South. I love the idea!

Jack and Joann said...

Wow! Those folks have quite a flower garden and you know that takes work. Wow again, Kent State beat my Miami Redhawks Saturday. You have bragging rights now.

We have 3 Rhodies, Tom. Ours are always gorgeous in spring also---but I don't have any colors except the purple one. I'd love a red rhododendron.... That yard is marvelous. Thanks for sharing.

That's a gorgeous way to get the lawn done! Beautiful rhodies.

The Rhodies are so beautiful. Reminds me of the Seattle area. It would be nice having that in the yard and no grass to mow!

Annie said...

Oh how beautiful. I saw one like this in Oregon on our road trip and I asked husband to stop so I can really enjoy all the rhododendron blooms.

Sun,Water,and miracle grow. I turned my back yard into a vegetable garden and only have very small side and front yard to mow. Think of the gasoline I save for the lawn mower. I can put it in the fishing boat instead. LOL

Twisted Fencepost said...

Wow, I never thought about that!
But I like to mow grass. I guess I could cut a little less grass to have beautiful flowers like that.

Pietro said...

Wonderful house, so green, with so many flowers and plants! Nice pictures, Tom!

Janie said...

Wow, that is a gorgeous landscape! And I wouldn't mind not having any grass to cut...

If it wasn't for the girls-I think I'd like to have a yard with no lawn. Very pretty landscape those folks have.
