I know some bloggers like to take detailed photos and do posts about every garden to try to give readers a feel for what it's like to tour the garden, and I love reading those kinds of posts, but I'm rubbish at putting them together myself. So I'm going to share some nice foliage combos that I saw. Gardens in this part of the country excel at cool, leafy gardens, and foliage is trendy (personally I prefer flowers). Flowers and quirk (there was even less of that). I can count on one hand the number of gardens that featured flowers. I'm going to see if I can get through this post without showing you any Hakone grass too, which, believe me, will be a big challenge (God, it was everywhere, and I'm sick of it).
|Can I let this stand in for ALL the yellow and red/purple combos I saw all weekend? God, that got repetitive.|
|Isn't that Loropetalum gorgeous?|
|Another bonus flower|
|Oh no, a little Hakone grass snuck in|
|Ah bugger, there it is again, I couldn't crop it out|
|Agh, help me|
|Pry my eyes out with a spoon -- I get it, it looks like water, but come on|
