We've been here before, way back in 2012. It was time to visit again...
I am just as impressed now as I was then. This gardener knows how to layer...
Obviously the bright sun isn't doing us any favors, oh well...I never say no to a blue sky.
This visit took place last summer, August 6th...
I wonder how our miserable winter and spring treated it?
If you're a HPSO member you can see for yourself when it opens again this year to members (May 12, Jun 11 and August 7, look under Vetter in your open gardens book).
Oh god, I forgot just how good an Agave can look! (my in-ground Agaves are all looking rather sad)
It would be difficult to leave these empty.
Another of my "if I had room" plant crushes, Sciadopitys verticillata.
I would have to grow a vine on that.
All that came before was in the front garden, it's time to head around back.
Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia' (?)
A Hosta and an Agave, side by side. That's something you don't see everyday.
Nor do you typically see a Cordyline swappowed by Impatiens omeiana. It's a good look though, a very good look.
I hope the homeowner/gardener spends a lot of time out here enjoying what he's created.
Cuz it's beautiful!
And just like that, it's time to leave...
