Taking the Long View
Today I thought I’d focus on views of various parts of the garden, rather than particular plants. I was inspired to do this by a meme hosted by Cathy at Words and Herbs that she calls The Tuesday View. It’s certainly important to step back and consider a garden’s look from the perspective of a little distance.
So let’s get started. Here’s the view from our front door looking out towards the street.
Looking down the path to the front door.
The Driveway Border from the other side of the driveway, or as I like to call it, the Left Bank. The Clematis ‘jackmanii’ is definitely winding down, but still has a few flowers.
Looking up the Driveway Border towards the front door from the sidewalk.
The Sidewalk Border. I’m not showing the Parkway Bed because it’s almost all green at the moment. It will color up in August.
Here’s the Left Bank Bed seen from the sidewalk.
And the view from the other end. I’m not showing the north end of this bed which is mostly full of herbs – that will be the subject of another post.
Here’s the path along the side of the garage to the back garden.
View from the arbor.
View from the steps to the back porch.
And here’s the view from the northeast corner of the back. You can see Rupert the Rooster relaxing on the patio. Hi Rupert!
I don’t think I’ll do these long views every week, but maybe every other week or so. That’s all for now.
