Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour 2011 - Luce Garden

Welcome back to day 3 of Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour 2011. Today we will take a stroll through the Luce Garden.

This garden utilized every square inch they had. They had a large garden on a lot behind the house, fruit trees and even a few chickens. With the exception of the garden behind the house, this yard had NO grass.


I loved all the pathways that led throughout the shady garden.


Of course, they had a few hydrangeas.


I'm not sure what the name of this hydrangea is. It was beautiful. It looked like it had just been planted, so it will probably change colors.




The back yard is very cozy. 






 The Luce's found a way to get fresh eggs dispite their small lot.

This is their garden behind their house. Isn't it beautiful!


So full of vibrant colors


 Recognize this plant?

It's pineapple! I would love to grow fresh pineapple, but I have never seen anyone grow it here. I am going to have to plant some next year.

Very nice and it doesn't look like a small lot to me. Wonder if that's a Lacecap Hydrangea? Mine is blooming now.

Notice the leaves on the small lacecap hydrangea. See the notches? I suspect that it is Hydrangea serrata, I wouldn't venture which cultivar it might be.

What a lovely garden and pineapple too!!! When I go walkin' 'round my Mama's neighborhood I covet the orange trees, grapefruit trees, banana trees and especially the avocados I see in the yards of Brownsville.

Not gonna happen in Missouri...wouldn't be prudent! :o)

Have a blessed day sweetie!!!

Beautiful gardens. Who would have thunk it - a pineapple plant here in Lower Alabama. I wonder if they've eaten the pineapple and how it compares to ones from the islands. Ooohhh what a pretty hydrangea. I bet the Hydrangea Queen was loving that. Gorgeous landscaping.
