The view from outside our dining room window is of 6' high fence panels, actually they are 6' 6" as the panels sit on concrete gravel boards!
We planted this long thin garden area (about 5' wide including the path) with various bushes. The normal pink mophead hydrangea always flowers well and needs cutting back and holding up each year:
We also have a hydrangea paniculata - vanille fraise:
It is in its vanille phase at the moment. As it ages, it takes on a gorgeous raspberry hue. The rest of the area to the left of these plants houses our household and recycling bins. The garden bin is elsewhere in use, plus two log stores:
To the right of the window are a physcocarpus, a small lavender and a red and lime green dogwood, plus one wood stores containing all the wood we need for kindling:
In spring, summer and autumn, the plants help soften the fences. In winter, they have a nice skelton appearance.
