Each day I post a photo of something garden related...it is an eclectic assortment and I post whatever I think might appeal to other kindred spirits out there. You can click here to go to the site: Serenity in the Garden on Facebook.
This is #2 of some photos from June 2012 on my FB page. I am trying to catch up and post them so they will be available to non-Facebook users. I have a lot more to post!
Pavers in the lawn create a great pattern - by Peter Walker and Associates, 311 West Broadway, NYC
I am planting a mass of CIRCUS coralbells today in a garden... Raspberry colored flowers complement the large, chartreuse to medium green leaves. Maroon veining during the spring and gorgeous late-season foliage ranging from green to yellow and pink. Zone 4 -8
Want to see some fun stuff? go to Terra Trellis on line. I LOVE the Gracie Arbor...how cool is that? http://www.terratrellis.com/
'Queen Elizabeth' is an elegant, grandiflora rose whose flowers come singly on one stem, similar to hybrid te...a roses. Cold climate rose.
It doesn't need much maintenance, can grow 4' - 5' tall and makes a good hedge. Cut down hard in late winter about once every 6 years to rejuvenate it. Mild fragrance. Info: http://www.rose-gardening-made-easy.com/queen-elizabeth-rose.html
Houzz featured one of my projects today (Johnsen Landscapes & Pools) - great article by the garden writer, Debra Prinzing!
Debra writes about my photo:
"I'm a sucker for a well-placed piece of artwork or sculpture in a garden setting. This classical bowl on a substantial pedestal has the correct proportion within the space. It rests informally on the green carpet of turf and relates nicely (at about half the height) to the border of ornamental grasses behind it.
As for scale, there's something quite elegant about the appropriateness of this piece. I can certainly imagine a much taller sculpture placed here. But I do appreciate how the pedestal's volume echoes the tree trunk at the far right."
