Yesterday I posted some graphic pictures of parts of my house. I'm sure looking forward to next week when all the work should be done. In the meantime, I have been sewing and gardening and riding. My yard is a sanctuary for me and I have loved tending it over the years. I do need help now as the property is just too big to manage without copious amounts of Advil. My husband and I tend to divide up areas each year to be our personal domains. This year he is taking care of the enclosed dog yard and hot tub area, with its hanging planters. He is also tackling a big job of removing some sod from one of the terraces and replanting around the vine maple.
Scattered around the yard are small alcoves and
hidden plants...it is a magical place.
I have enough room to experiment with different bulbs or annuals, and to have woodland plantings or sunny, cheerful areas.
