First Year Snapshots

Yesterday on my way to somewhere else, I stopped at a garden I designed and installed last fall. The design mostly followed the footprint of a formal garden that had fallen into ruin–the concrete pond was there as was a crumbling low garden wall. I updated it and designed a scheme of mostly deer resistant plants–the exceptions being roses and daylilies planted at the owner’s request.

These are not the best photos I’ve taken and I usually don’t photograph gardens in their first season –they need time to fill in. First year photos are like taking baby pictures–the gardens are going to morph and mature and come into their own as they grow–and really they’re just another cute baby. I made an exception yesterday since really liked what I saw.

    Love the boxwoods bordering your beds. Very English garden. The wall is beautiful. Nice pictures!
