Dream Weaver

I envy anyone who has the ability to make beautiful tapestries under their trees and shrubs. I am fine when it is in the regular part of my garden, but now that some of my trees (like my Cercis) are starting to mature, I am struggling with painting a beautiful picture under them.

When I was visiting Marion Jarvies garden in May, I found some stunning combinations that I am hoping to copy.

From a distance,


and up close and personal.

You can see that it is not the rarest or newest plants, just a lovely mix of hostas, ferns, grasses etc. But it is the combination of colours and textures that makes it so special.

 Some of the plants I have already, so there will be a bit of plant moving this autumn, can’t wait.
