Oh boy, flashing way back to June of 2016 and a stop on the Salem, Oregon, Hardy Plant Society Study Weekend event...
From the event handout..."Thirty-one years ago we purchased our small A-frame home situated on 3 heavily wooded acres in South Salem. Over the years we have added to and remodeled our home and dropped over 40 trees throughout the front of the property, though many large trees still remain. The back 1½ acre is left native as cover for birds and other wildlife. A new ¼ mile woodland walk “the affirmation trail” has been added. The garden is filled with plants collected over the past 30 years ...Our goal has always been to create a small sanctuary to enjoy ourselves along with our friends." ..."small" I guess it's all relative right?
I could have a party here and invite every single person I know and still have room for the rest of you and everyone you know.
It was a wonderful place to wander through.
Impatiens omeiana bigger than my hand!
And another patch! See it, on the left under the Hydrangea?
The sign says "garden shed".
I love that here, in a big garden, the plants are still touching and mashing it up. Rather than spaced out like chess pieces in the landscape.
The top of the rock wall, all planted up with Sedum.
I like it.
Nicely coordinated containers...
This garden had something for everyone.
At the back of the home, another great party space...
Love the small water feature. Were there fish in the water? I can't remember, but the decorative plaque seems to say yes.
Back out front now, in the driveway.
Even a veggie garden! This was a fun place to visit...
