One of the lower gardens at the BigHouse. I have since discovered a even prettier section of this courtyard. It has a goldfish pond and some of the largest peonies and calla lilies that I have ever seen.
There are 2 of these big boys guarding the front steps. They look kinda big in this photo but they are really only about 3 feet tall.
I believe this is a wild or native azalea. If you know better please correct me. If it is, I have never seen one in yellow before. There are a bunch of pink ones too.
This is a better view of Birmingham from the roof of the house. I can see several of the buildings I have worked on over the years from here.
