Patterns and Plants, in Nashville
We are back in Nashville for Day 2 at the in-laws garden (for those of you wondering…yes, I’ve talked about the New Mexico in-laws….no, they didn’t move. I have two pairs….the New Mexico’s and the Tennessee’s)….today is all about the plants and the patterns…and sometimes both. First the patterns… Plant leaves, making patterns… And finally, the plants. This was my first time seeing the beautiful bark of the Crape Myrtle. A view of the back garden, so much open space…and so many mature trees. And the Bamboo! In the ground none-the-less! Beautiful. I’m just not so sure the neighbors think so; word is that it’s showing up on the other side of the fence. Canes harvested and ready for use. I meant to ask for a tiny piece of this variegated Liriope. Beautiful berries. Cannas, bitten by frost. A view across the garden from the house. A view across one of the patio’s towards the Bamboo. I hope to return someday to see this garden in spring….but not summer. No, I hear stories of the heat and humidity…it might be too much for me.
