Anna introduced me to her garden explaining what plants still needed to be moved where and I knew in that instant that she was a kindred spirit. All the plants in my garden have moved around on the tip of my shovel, at least once, except for the large fir tree. My Pirate won’t enable me (his term) anymore, so it felt wonderful to share this quirk with another gardener.
The scent of vanilla wafted down onto us from her massive blooming magnolia tree as we explored and I took pictures.
I loved her use of rusty metal. It added dimension and interest.
She even had a cardoon in her front parking strip like me!
Her garden was filled with beautiful blooms.
|Can you see the bumble bee?|
I admired her artistic combinations of foliage. Her plants were huge and happy. I felt her garden surround us like a hug.
And her Podophyllum is gorgeous. Now I'm excited to see mine grow in.
Look at those huge leaves!
The seed heads contrasted nicely with the new blooms.
And Manneman supervised our visit. Such a cool name for a cat.
Thanks for the wonderful evening, Anna!
