There are people you feel you’ve known forever, even though you’ve only just met them, for me Rebecca Sweet is one of those people. We met for the first time at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show last February. She is an extremely warm and friendly person and her garden is the perfect extension of her personality.
I had the opportunity to visit Rebecca’s garden during the Garden Bloggers Fling last summer. I think it was a favorite for many of us, especially those who were missing the comfort and “hominess” of our own gardens. Not that I can grow these wonderful plants in my garden (oh that I could!)…
If Rebecca’s name sounds familiar it may be due to the fact she co-authored Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces (written with another wonderful lady, Susan Morrison), or perhaps from her garden design work as Harmony in the Garden.
It wasn't until I started to edit my photos that I realized just how many aeoniums there were in Rebecca's garden, I only included a fraction of those I saw...
I feel certain one of the other "flingers" identified this fern in a post, but I can't find it. Anyone know?
The wide brick border has me seriously considering adding another brick or two to my border, I like the more pronounced look.
Rebecca has mastered the art of the vignette...
Towards the back of the garden is her office...
A lust-worthy space for sure.
I was very tempted to toss a coin in the fountain, I wonder if anyone did?
The aeonium tower was made of cuttings.
Even though this is a horrible photo I had to include it so I could drool over the bougainvillea.
I leave you with this fabulous variegated agave, A. vilmoriniana I believe. Thank you Rebecca for sharing your beautiful garden with us!
