Garden Tour May 2009…

May 18, 2009

Ok, again, after hosting somewhere between 600-1500 people through my yard yesterday (it seriously felt like 1500!) I realized that I'd not gotten a moment to take any photos before or during the tour. Perhaps some folks on the tour got some shots during. I know I didn't get a chance to answer everyone's questions, but hopefully a good time was had by all. I took a few quick photos after the tour last evening, so forgive all the smashed turf and pathways, etc.! Click on the photos to enlarge them:

Cardoon, Bronze Fennel were popular in the front yard...Dwarf Bear's Breeches (Acanthus spinosus) drew a lot of attention in the back shade garden.
In the background, Sean doing what he does best...I set the patio table with my botanical china...I had to laugh at how many ladies were checking out the dishes, on a garden tour, ladies are like that...

Lily of the Nile, Agapanthus 'Royal Ama' totally stole the can't beat that blue! And in the background...Ramona telling everyone to get out!

 I have lots going on in the veggie garden, so I'll update soon...
