Favorite Garden Spots

garden bench with St. John's Wort shrub

We all have our favorite places in our gardens: a view that charms us, a special spot to sit and survey our work or a pleasant stroll through beloved plants. This old bench was a favorite of mine before the ice storm. I could sit under the big elm in the shade, relax and look at the beauty around me. It is still a special place but without the elm, the sun has done amazing things. All the plants, hellebores, asters, daylilies, and shrubs, have grown bigger than ever. Now I view it from a distance because the flowers have claimed my special place.  I’ve decided that’s not such a bad thing. See you in the garden.

  1. Thanks for opening your garden for the tour. I remember the big picture and now through your blog have the close up picture. What more can a gardener ask for

  2. I also lost a huge elm in the ice storm & have noticed the great change in the plants I had there. Now I have a new flower bed as well. 🙂
