Nearly a month ago now, I got a call from Judy whose garden you may recall from here and here saying that I should go and see her friend Marylin's garden. When you get set up on a blind date with a garden, you never know if you'll encounter a frog or a prince. Fortunately, Marylin has both in her garden:
I tried to get a better picture of her princely dog (sorry if he's a she) but he kept moving. What a sweet clown!
Ah the colors of late summer. Marylin uses pots of colorful bloomers throughout her garden.
Love the foliar texture in this one!
Is there anything more cheerful in the shade than the deeply saturated colors of impatiens?
Of the several gorgeous hardy fuchsias in Marylin's garden, this was my favorite.
Mahonia in full berry. I never tire of their beauty!
Cool kinetic water feature.
