View of Southeast corner before we seeded the east lawn (by hand, very challenging). In the corner is a young Birch Bark Flowering Cherry tree (very pretty bark, red and peels like a white birch) the Woodland Aster, vintage hybrid tea rose, young Gaura and young Wigelia. The large ornamental rocks in my beds came from a pile one of our previous neighbors left behind on one of the front corners of our property so we snagged them and they sat in a pile for several years before I knew what to do with them. On the far right barely peeking out is a lovely vintage climber Rev d'Or, on the other side of the picket fence is the amazing Mutablis China rose, a small pink climber that has been moved since this photo was taken and a very young Lacecap Hydrangea (barely visible).
Gardening in the Pacific Northwest.
Passionate about the rambling tangled look of a cottage garden. I love to spend multiple hours making it all happen in my 50+ perennial beds (including 26 rows in a cutting garden), heirloom vegie and herb garden with a few fruit trees and berries.
Please follow me as I note my successes and set-backs in my gardening venture.
