Think European. In Salem, Oregon. We're flashing back to June of 2016...
From our Study Weekend brochure: "Our Mediterranean-style home and 2-acre garden began as an abandoned hilltop pasture 17 years ago. Our garden reflects the influence of our visits to gardens in western Europe. Italian influences dominate our interior garden, including a Tuscan fountain, dining pergola and loggia, as well as extensive hedging. Think Italian with color. A French inspired allee connects the upper garden to the lower tropical garden. Other features include a white garden, an English cottage garden, a Mediterranean garden, and a new prairie garden. The gardens outside the wall are informal, reflecting a northwest style."
Honestly I remember being a little hesitant to devote much time to this garden, fearing it would be something like Trump's idea of a European garden.
My concern was misplaced, it was wonderful...
Wish I had room.
Kinda magical, right?
Daphne × burkwoodii ‘Briggs Moonlight’, I swoon.
These were a little unexpected.
I can imagine walking out those doors on a summer morning, coffee in hand, ready to admire my estate. Yes I can.
That's quite the shade pavilion.
Sweet vignette! (Santolina and Kniphofia)
Pots on plinths
We're about to make our leave of this charming garden.
