I keep coming back to this photo on my phone from a sunny Saturday a couple weeks ago.  I took it while sitting on our hypertufa bench, under the rose trellis, with my back to the garage wall.  I've been sitting in this spot off and on for over 8 years now.  In the early days of the garden, I would sit and dream...imagining a slate patio in the foreground, an accent trough, middle ground interest, and a distant evergreen back border.  Slowly it all came together over the years.

The photo looks like the painting in my mind from years ago.


  1. So pretty. Now what's your next "project"?

  2. I need to renovate the guest room!
