More 2012 Gardens! This garden was full of color and texture, much of it from foliage.
Succulents tucked into a stone.
Leaning tower of terra cotta!
Layers of interest provided height via poles. I think of these as birdfeeder supports, but look at them here.
Another water feature.
How to add interest to a fence, think of it as a canvas.
This next garden is a professional's home.
No lawn mower needed at the curb. I loved it!
The pond was tucked away and worth venturing out to explore.
A lovely shaped urn.
Stairs leading to a grotto, planted instead of stoney.
European Wild ginger. A friend just gave me some this year. Thank you Sue!
More than one of a kind, this is usually what a pro does. Beginners get one of everything, and that leads to a busy frantic look. This repetition says "calm."
This weeping spruce was huge, and spectacular.
