Flower Gardens start with a Plan & a Vision
This past May we shaped beds and planted my Landscape Design that was created the previous fall. Working with Jim and Diane, the Plan for the Perimeter Flower Garden would embrace two sides of their property. The new garden connects visually with their beautiful existing gardens. It has winter interest and blooms from spring until frost. Pollinators and birds love the native shrubs & perennials. The sitting area invites one to pause and enjoy. And, to linger long enough to activate the senses and restore one’s spirit & body.
Diane and Jim are avid gardeners. Amazingly, they had attended all my Boston Flower Show lectures over many years. I was honored when they asked me to create this transformation from the previous old White Pines marking the perimeter into a Flower Garden for all Seasons.
Here’s the text and photos from the email they sent me.
Just a note to let you know how thrilled we are with the beautiful flowering tree, shrub and perennial border you designed for us. We can scarcely believe the transformation! As it comes into full summer bloom, the garden becomes more beautiful by the day. Your hand-selected plants are all thriving, and we love how you created a sweeping new border that harmonizes so perfectly with our existing landscape. It is truly our dream garden, beyond what we could have imagined! Spending time in our new garden has been a daily joy for us, and our neighbors continue to comment on how beautiful it is. We enjoy relaxing on our garden bench, taking in the beauty all around us and look forward to seeing our garden through the changes of each new season.
Many thanks, Maria! We are attaching a couple of photos taken just this morning, to show you how beautifully the garden is prospering and blooming, even in this drought.
