How - or even where do your gardens grow?

While painting the side wall yesterday, I started thinking about what I want to do with my yards. Yes, plural. I'm lucky for a coastal socali cottage - I have a lot of yard. People who don't live here wouldn't think so, but the locals understand!
I have a front yard that is a good size, a backyard that's even bigger, a side yard(where my vegetable garden is going) and the backyard of the garage/guest house.
Museville (in progress) at dawn this morning -- the garden bed of misfits
a temporary housing of plants for different parts of the yards.
The plants here were in terrible shape, and weren't what we wanted, so we tore out every one of them when we moved in - including some trees. I brought some plants with me from the old place - some that hadn't been put into the ground yet and a few, that while they weren't really special, they were going to be torn out by the new owners, and I thought the least I could do was save their lives and give them a new start over here. ... Enter that crazy mosh of plants in front of the picture window -- they are all temporarily living there until I can figure out where I want them to live, permanently.
While laying on the roof yesterday, painting eaves and pulling wires out of the way, dreaming of my future gardens, and how ugly the roof was -- my mind drifted to rooftop gardens - so for fun, I search around and found some good ones.
