under the sea fantasy
The big freeze did a number on some of my front yard plants, so we took most everything out of this flower bed and created an 'Under the Sea Fantasy'. I must say that our whole house is decorated with everything from the sea, so it was a good choice to do a sea fantasy. The seahorse was created by my DH. We bought ficus repens (creeping fig) plants and put small portions into the moss filled frame. They are just planted and need to fill out. We also added eyes after this picture was taken.
The plants are mostly succulents all chosen to look like corals and sea grasses. We still have lots of special things to add including a starfish topiary on a big rock, sea shells, and fantasy fish.
It has taken a lot of work to get this far and there is still much more to do, but I am so excited to just get this much done!
