How Does My Garden Grow
Mr. Al designed our Woodland Garden, and together we planted it with shade loving plants. Come down the path with me, and stop to smell the jasmine and sweet bay magnolia.
Mr. Tumnus stands sentry in the hellebores and sweet woodruff..
Rhododendrons bloom under the oak trees.
A long view of the back garden stretching toward the pond.
A tiny cottage garden lines the walk leading to my kitchen. This is where I grow my herbs and the flowers I use for cutting.
A winter storm felled the arbor last November, but my Mozart Rose blooms undaunted.
Foxgloves, my favorite flower, mingle with David Austin roses Othello and Mary Rose.
Zephrine Drouhin and Constance Spry roses clamber over the walls of the house in the front cottage garden (for Inspire Me Thursday and Saturday Surprise).
