2014 Garden Memories
. . . in the Hutchings gardens
|A friendly greeting awaits you at the Hutchings home.|
|Potted petunias totem. |
How did they do that?
|An exotic branched sculpture remains after Nate pruned a contorted filbert |
that had been hit by the eastern filbert blight.
|The tree now forms a vibrant focal point in the back yard . . .|
|and has become a unique support for pretty hanging baskets.|
(Latest word is that there is new growth at the base of the tree!)
|A clump of TB 'Rare Treat' makes a lovely show.|
|Smooth, sword-like iris foliage creates a strong textural contrast against |
the rugged pale boulder and feathery silver-leaved artemesia.
|Irises and daylilies highlight the plantings that surround a naturalistic pond |
in a picturesque corner of Diamond Rise Gardens.
|Another pretty iris|
|More pretty irises|
Mr. Jack O'Lantern keeps a watchful eye on comings and growings.
Don't forget to wave goodbye as you leave.

|TB 'Insaniac', one of my favorites last spring at the RBG Laking Gardens|
which are presently undergoing an extensive renovation.
