Alison looked at google earth shots of this garden and a year or so ago, there was noting here by way of garden. Suzy Blair and David Servick have certainly been busy gardeners to have done all of this in so short a time!
"The garden is an ever evolving experiment in edible landscaping. There are pumpkins growing among the arborvitaes, strawberries with petunias, and the purple flowers of the eggplant add a regal toubh to the perennial boarders along the driveway."
We use kale as others use azaleas. With the help of fuchsias, sunflowers, and a tiny pond we are able to keep relatively bug free by coaxing our feathered friends into our little heaven."
Suzy made these pots!
Nothing like a flowery bed to cheer one!
In the Federal Way Symphony tour, each gardener is paired with an artist/crafter whose wares are available for sale. In this case the artist and gardener are the same. Suzy Blair who works in concrete or hypertufa.
I'm sorry I didn't grab one of these faces. Fortunately Suzy's Pottet Anthropic Rock has an email address so one could shop at another time.
Look, a bamboo back there!
So bight and happy!
Healthy looking peach tree! They're very prone to disease here. Sad as I love fresh peaches.
More of Suzy's creations.
It's hard not to smile in the midst of all of this floral fun.
Thanks Suzy and David for opening your garden and showing us how much you've done in only a year!
Happy sunny weekend everyone!
