Although a gardener designs an area for a certain effect it often does not live up to the wonderful vision you had in your mind: plants die, don't actually bloom when you think they will, colors turn out to be faulty, or for dozens of other reasons, it just doesn't work.
this year it all came together in my street-side border...
the pink Tabebuia tree and the Chinese Fringe bush decided to cooperate.
I am delighted! this is what I had in mind when I painted the bench red.
We are actually having rain this week, and the nearby mountains are dusted with snow, another reason to be happy!
Thank you for visiting.
