Trough Season

A group of troughs on our deck.

Yes, our neighbor's house is ten feet away.  It can lead to uncomfortable moments when we're both on our decks.  Luckily our most recent neighbors on that side seemed to despise their backyard.

Silene caroliniana is gorgeous this week.  The gnome appeared in the trough one day when my young son was out with the neighbors at a nursery.  

Gnomes happen.  I'll get over it.

A Home Depot saxifrage.

One of my favorite sights in spring: the dwarf conifers pumping out fresh growth.  This one is hemlock 'Cole's Prostrate'.

The doublefile viburnum is booming right now, despite the drizzle.
