Above: one of the outdoor “rooms” a friend created in her garden.
I explored a friend’s garden last week. An oasis, really.
This is a garden where, wherever you turn, a new treasure awaits. Few blossoms, however, hold the magical effect of Magnolia sieboldii, above. In that garden, the tree has attained a sizeable presence.
There is a clematis collection.
And around the corner, another clematis clamours for attention…
And there were still rhododendrons, finishing their season…
And to conclude, here is an intimate look at a peony.
