Many garden design books will tell you the bones of the garden (meaning hardscape) are much more important than the plants, of course we all know they're crazy, those kind of books aren't written by the hard-core plant lovers. However there is no denying structure is important, with a good framework in place the plants are allowed to shine. With that in mind I've bumped the "plant" right out of my favorite feature this week and I'm shining that spotlight on our new fence...
I just absolutely love it!
Or I suppose I should say "them" since there are two sections, on the north and south side of our back garden...
I took most of these shots the day after they finished the work, when the sun came out. Sadly while they were working there was no sun, only rain, rain and more rain. Hence when they finished there was mud, mud and more mud...everywhere.
This shot is to show that if you get close enough you can indeed see through the slats a bit, but from under the shade pavilion and on the patio (see photos above), the places where we sit and relax, it's a solid fence with complete privacy.
Did I mention there was some mud?
So what's your favorite plant (or thing) in your garden this week?
