Traveling north to our Northern Appalachian garden

A last spring view in our Southern Appalachian garden

The view out our front door takes in the sedum bed and the pocket meadow.  This evening, sunset light illuminated the volunteer Heuchera in the sedum bed and the almost in flower Thermopsis beyond, as well as Penstemon digitalis already in flower.

Looking towards the house, the pollinator-friendly pocket meadow is coming along nicely.  Our summer folks will enjoy it.

A charming hoophouse

I certainly haven’t seen a hoophouse devoted to be a flower garden before, although I know many gardeners use their greenhouses for tender ornamentals of all sorts.

This one was at The Organic Center, an interesting place in quite a remote spot north of Sligo Town.

I’d looked for the Organic Center before, without success, but had seen a sign for it, coming back from a recent far-flung excursion, so was emboldened to try again.

Nice to see a small-scale place like this seemingly flourishing. The rest of their polytunnels were filled with vegetables of all kinds!
