ideas for front yards

I go on a lot of garden tours to get ideas for my small, urban garden. I have recently begun to take digital photos in order to remember ideas that I really liked.

Here are two of my favorite vignettes from a tour that I took in the St. Anne neighborhood of Dayton, OH.

Here is what I have done on the shady half of my front yard. (I'm still not satified with the sunny part).

Here's two views of a nice little formal garden down the street from me that I love walking past. (The dome shaped tree is actually a lilac!)

This is, believe it or not, the 2 1/2' wide hell strip between the sidewalk and the street, on another walk.

A few more from my morning walk...

This is a small space, about 10' deep about maybe 15' wide.
