Garden Reverie


“What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.”

–  Gertrude Jekyll, On Gardening

Some of the nice things I’m seeing in the garden this month. I can’t bear to show you the overwhelming number of not-nice things (weeds!!!).  So let’s accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative.

Please click on the images to see them better.

Having lost so many of my beautiful heirloom English boxwood over the past couple of years, I finally capitulated to the unpleasant necessity of pulling what was left of them out of the long shady border that runs along one side of the garden, directly opposite the patio.  I took this photo when I was working on the design and laying out the new plants.  Emma P strolls by, keeping me company.IMG_4043 - Version 2

All is planted now, though I have not finished placing all the ornaments that formerly were in the space.  It’s looking quite good.  Fingers crossed that all will flourish!

Happy summer, happy gardening!
