"We have gardened on this property for 12 years now."
"During that time we have continuously added to the existing garden and we now have almost a full acre of landscaped gardens that are easy to walk around in."
Whimsical touches pepper the garden which must delight the Penney's grandchildren!
Usually walls made of concrete wall blocks from the box stores seem sterile to me but this one, covered with moss and plants is appealing.
"Our garden is best described as cottage-style with a little woodland, abundant with perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees.
"A tiny stream runs the lenght of our back yard and is crossed by two foot bridges."
"Something is in bloom here at any time of year, from late winter to first frost. Come and see for yourself!"
There were certainly a lot of things in bloom on this day in mid July.
I had to look twice but wasn't startled as we don't have large snakes in the PNW. Come to think of it, I haven't even seen a native garter snake in years. Pam says that this is an effective bird deterrent.
Every bed edge is sharp, every plant given appropriate space, not a single fallen leaf on the mulch. Makes me feel like the biggest garden sloth in existence.
Great garden structure. Oh to have more space...
Bees were abundant and seemed very happy with the floral offering!
Thank you Pam and Andrew for opening your floriferous garden for us all to enjoy!
