Barbie's Wild Kingdom

Barbie and Harry Byrd have a shady back yard that she has developed into “A Pots Farm.” She takes the plants out of the pots when they are no longer healthy, divides and plants healthy ones, and she calls it the “survival of the fittest.” Harry enjoys her ability to have the garden beautiful most of the year and he likes to call it “Barbie's Wild Kingdom.

Almost all of the plants are in pots. Near the pond and water fall is a beautiful collection. To name a few they are coleus, bromeliad, begonia and many others. In another area ia a beautiful Chenile Plant and a purple Zabrina pendula. Her sister gave her the lovely Trumpet Tree 3 years ago when it was only 12 inches tall. She loves to add color in the shade and plant herbs such as thyme, basil and oregano for her special cook Harry. It is great to see so many creative ideas!
