My hillside garden beginning to bloom. I tend to have to wait to later in the summer before I get any color except for my groundcovers, and a few bulbs because of cold Northern winds.

The west side of this 50's vintage California bungalow was an over-run weed patch when we bought it. The afternoon sun is very intense on this side of the house and the single window to the master bedroom was covered by a crude shade consisting of a sheet of plywood supported by old metal bedrails bolted to the eaves. Functional... but taking ugly to a whole new level.
We have a cool, shady spot between two trees that we decided to make into a relaxing sitting area. Here in Southwest Florida, gusty thunderstorms pop up daily in the summer, so the furniture had to be sturdy so it wouldn't blow into the canal. We chose a heavy log bench from Home Depot, and a concrete table that is stained and textured to look like a log. Added some flowers too, so we have a pretty place to sit and look out over the canal.

This south-west area in front of our house use to be a flower bed. And by "flower" I of course mean "weed" Years ago we added the brick-lined concrete slab as an extension to the front patio. However we rely on a westerly sea breeze to cool the house and the new concrete slab created a lot of glare heated up in the sun and pretty much negated the cooling breeze.
I would like to make this shady area into a sitting area with ferns bromeliads etc.any suggestions?
This spot combines both full sun & shady exposure. I've tried different layouts for years but I think this is it. Bordering the rock/driveway in full sun, lavendar & sedum will grow to make low hedges. Under the canopy of our large pine tree, there are several varieties of hosta combined with 3 hydrangeas. For the bed extending out the other side of the tree, I added a repeating effect of coral bells & various grasses. It mimics the opposing bed in front of my house but in different colors.
