More small-scale gardens

This endearing garden owner was looking for advice (the rest of her garden was spectacular).

There were so many interesting vignettes in the jam-packed (I should say plant-packed) gardens we visited yesterday that I can only provide a sampling. Foliage plants are used extensively here, and apparently these gardens were quite representative of NW gardens.


  1. Oh my, the photo called "whimsical colors" -- that grass, what is it called, if you know? That's mini fireworks!

  2. I'm not sure what it really was, but it looked to me like huge ornamental Allium seedheads augmented with a bit of pigment (either daubed on or carefully sprayed). I didn't poke around to see but perhaps they had been placed there?

    Totally whimsical, to be sure! I loved the image.


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
