    Marvelous photos. They give a real sense of all of the work you do to build and maintain the garden.

    I think that was a lot of work, but you must truly enjoy it. Each spot in the yard looks very inviting. My husband loves gardening too. He learned everything from his grandfather. Me? I’d much rather write.

    How unique. You have talent and imagination. What is that metal thing? If you tell me it is some kind of common object all I have to say is my eyes are tired. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Your Hostas are always in such great condition John, don’t you have problems with slugs? Thanks for joining GBFD with the lovely green structure of your garden.

  8. I envy you your Hostas! Too many deer, bunnies, and woodchucks around my yard for me to be able to grow them. What is in the pot with the Heuchera?

      I’m not sure why we have avoided deer problems (see an earlier post about uninvited visitors), but the hostas have been almost free of predation. I do spray with Liquid Fence. Fingers are crossed!
      The other items in the pot are ajuga Black Scallop, Encore Azalea Autumn Carnival, Euphorbia Star Dust (can’t see), gaura (can’t see), Hypericum Brigadoon, and autumn fern. It will be interesting to see how/if it survives a winter.
