A quick walk about today. Come join me…. in the front yard. May-14-2015Garden-004b - Copy The small Loropetalum just might grow into a large shrub over time.May-14-2015Garden-002b - Copy Previous owners planted all the rhododendrons.May-14-2015Garden-020b Now for the back yard. This is an overall view from the sauna’s deck.May-14-2015Garden-009b   Here you are looking back toward the sauna, across a newly planted area.May-14-2015Garden-012b   To the left of the above photo is a path to a “secret trail”.May-14-2015Garden-011b From the deck you can see 3 trees: a dogwood, a small variegated cornus alternifolia, and a full moon maple. May-14-2015Garden-005b May-14-2015Garden-006b May-14-2015Garden-008b Here are a few of the rhododendrons. The pale pink ones are powerfully scented.May-14-2015Garden-016b May-14-2015Garden-015b May-14-2015Garden-013b There is lots of work going on with perennials and clematis. My fingernails tell the story! It is also time for watering things daily. There is not much room for a vegetable garden . Almost all sunny areas are devoted to clematis .

    Just lovely, ‘bug! Right up my alley… nice paths that lead onward without telling you exactly where they mean to go. Quiet, cool, and subtle. And I love Rhodies… not just the “popular” varieties.
