This is my garden paradise in the coastal Mississippi city of Bay Saint Louis. We have about 1/2 acre, and it is filled to the brim.
The warm climate means that beautiful exotic plants like this bird of paradise (Strelitzia, Zones 9 –11) thrive. The unusual flower shape is to allow its pollinators—which are birds—to land on the flower and access the nectar.
Got an old wheelbarrow? Why not repurpose it as a planter? Cheery annuals give this barrow a new life.
There is room for vegetables too, like these thriving celery plants.
