Lucky you, it is that time of year again, where I brave life and limbs, standing on the roof to take photos of my garden. Don’t hold back your screams of delight, I can tell how excited you are.
So this is where it stands this spring, our 7th,
Last spring I planted Acer campestre ‘Carnival’ here, and you can just see it against the cedar hedge. What you can’t see is a purple smoke bush, Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ just to the side and behind it. I think it will be a lovely contrast between the Acer and the Cornus alternofolia ‘Golden Shadows’.
You can just see the Fritillaria meleagris (at least the white ones) in the grass.
Note to self, finish extending the muscari the length of the walk!!!!!
Nothing to report on the Lime Walk, although my friend David Leeman had been here the week before,
and had tamed the shaggy monsters the box balls had become.
Now I just have to keep them in line.
The Serviceberry Allee
The Allee just keeps ticking long, although I do have to get in, divide the Narcissus ‘Bridal Crown’ and space them through the length of the allee. These were forced pots from work, and I just threw them in the ground when I started the very first bed.
The Flora Glade and The Kitchen Garden
Here you can see the Flora Glade and Kitchen Garden.
Ooops, still have not got my path finished, the one that I was working on last spring, lol. That has to go on the list for the fall, it would be really, really embarrassing to show you the Flora Glade next spring, with the path not done. Added a couple of shrubs here this spring, hopefully I remembered to take some photos of them before I left and I can update you.
And just for your viewing pleasure, a bit of a further away shot, called not using the zoom on the camera.
You can probably see what looks like a tall post to the left of the garage. This was a diseased red maple that we had cut down in the fall. I have the bright idea of growing a clematis up it, just another thing to add to the list.
