Lots of work accomplished in the garden today. Sun is shining and warm. Wonderful. I had this lovely companion in and out of different spaces all day:
The local plant sale season started this weekend. I was off before 7am to catch the Eaglecrest Garden Club Sale…always lots of wonderful little pieces of Garden club members gardens at fantastic prices…here’s the haul….
Then today I hit the road, again at 7am, to check out the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific’s Spring Sale…scored many more somewhat exotic lovelies.
After that, I wandered the gardens at the HCP….through a stunning woodland garden full of inspirational shade lovers:
Phew….what a day….feels good! Now…lots of planting to do!!!
There’s not much happening in the PNW garden in late December, so a walk in the woods around Westwood Lake just up the ravine from us restores the soul and smells divine. Damp, misty, moody, balmy…makes for a lovely day outside.
A damp, moody day…but the colours in the garden are singing.
Suddenly, the heat is gone, the air is cool, the days are shorter, the light is softer….September….welcome!! What’s blooming? At first glance…not so much. But close-up…a lot is still going on.
