My visit to Astrid's garden was on the last day of a garden tour, one of two she was involved in this summer. The day was a warm one and the sun was quite bright. Shall we have a look around?
It was obvious from the start that Astrid likes hostas and sedums
She has some nice trees in the garden, like this weeping Norway Spruce
a Pin Oak and Blue Spruce
a Black Locust at the end fronted by a variegated dogwood and some fantastic grass that waved around with the slight breeze we had.
and a Serviceberry loaded with fruit.
There were a few rose bushes like these on this great obelisk
and in among the daisies and feverfew (or is it chamomile?)
Astrid has a superb specimen of Jackmanii clematis
bordered by eye popping colour - fantastic!
And by the front door, a large and lush climbing hydrangea.
I still owe Astrid a tour in my garden, and I will soon once this rain stops. Any mis-labeled plants in the photos are my mistakes. Thanks again Astrid.
