Here's the description from the tour brochure: "Betsy & George's Garden -- Featured ten years ago, this sprawling garden features unusual specimens and uncommon plant pairings. This is a wonderful example of shade gardening at its finest, with big trees and difficult sites well filled with choice plants. This is a certified Wildlife Habitat Garden."
This garden could make me a hosta lover! I knew hosta foliage could be an interesting foil for other shapes and types of leaves, but it didn't really hit home until today.
|They had some wonderful moss-covered rocks!|
|There was a pleasantly serene waterfall and pond, surrounded by yet more moss.|
This was one of those gardens where something lovely hit you in the face every time you turned around.
|Standing under this gnarled, mossy, licheny, expertly pruned filbert was almost a spiritual experience.|
I didn't realize till I was on my way out, and looked back at the garden one more time, that one of the trees I had been standing under was an enormous monkey puzzle tree!
Like I said, "Fabulous!" Right?
