As you may know, I went on a number of garden walks this summer. Many of the gardens were filled with kitschy art, lots of annuals bedded with no sense of design, and not a lot of thought.
The following picture are not that. These all come from one garden I would consider a standout. I'm going to post them in the order I viewed the garden, to give you a better idea of its small space, good gardening, and design.
I hope you enjoy this particular garden as much as I did!
|I loved this! They took four smaller pieces and combined them to forma much larger piece making a even larger statement by having it seem to swirl out from the Jackmanii type clematis.|
|Au cage aux folle...?|
|An interesting way to work with the unfortunate placement of a garage window|
|Campanula Pink Octopus|
|The barrel cactus is actually a metal art piece.|
|They had a Japanese maple, but not the typical Bloodgood.|
|The use of clematis and bedding out in drifts made this garden seem huge. They also gardened primarily using perennials. I'm not sure I didn't see a single annual. Anything in a pot seemed to be a houseplant vacationing outdoors.|
|This was a bold garden in many ways. Check out this color combination!|
