Another local garden with lots of winter interest…
I walk by this garden almost daily, it looks great no matter the season. Of course one of the biggest differences between this winter interest garden and the one I shared a couple of weeks ago is this one has a lawn. In high summer, the lawn is allowed to go dormant and turns “Portland gold” … being a lover of a green lawn I prefer it now. The photo tour starts at the north end and works south. So many evergreens and established structural plants. I’ve never really understood the fuss over Nandina, finally I get it. It’s beautiful in this garden. To me this garden is quintessential Pacific Northwest Style.
