Obviously plant lovers live here...
There's also a healthy dose of DIY. I chatted quite a bit with the male half of the partnership and he was responsible for many (if not all) of the structures you'll see throughout this garden.
Clematis rule here as well. It was hard to not immediately start buying everyone I saw in my post-visit nursery wanderings.
But you're probably wondering about the title of this post? Look up in the tree (below). Super HUGE wind chimes. The size that had me immediately feeling sympathetic towards the neighbors. But get this. They turn them off at night, lower the "ringer" so no matter how hard the wind blows there is no sound. How considerate.
How many gardens have you visited where you're handed a laminated map?
Love this edging.
This "trellis" inspired. I've since seen an even better design (and so will you, in due time...)
Another striking Golden Robinia.
There was a pond on the other side of the Hosta backed barrier, I failed to get a good photo.
This was the inset in a custom made gate. I admired their restraint in not growing a vine on it. It must be tempting.
There were great vignettes throughout the garden.
But it was time to bid farewell...
