Today, I am sharing my front garden. Even though my garden is a mature garden, I have been tweaking, deleting and adding throughout the years.  As I was walking into the house today, I thought this front garden was almost to the point where I wanted it to be. Well, for the time being, or until I find an another plant I can't wait to grow.
My front garden is mainly made up of many palm trees, bird of paradise, proteas and agapanthus. My idea is to build a tropical themed garden. The main color theme is orange and yellow, which is striking against green foliage. Recently I added an accent of color with Japanese maple. Now that all the bird of paradises are done blooming, the color is peeking out from the hibiscus and bougainvillea.
