Who needs the garden show when you can see real gardens that have withstood the test of time. Along with the blue fence, this gardener uses windows, mirrors and found materials to create her garden rooms.
The gate into the shade garden (yes a former bed headboard).
At another garden, I enjoyed watching the mason bees select their choice nesting tube. I have just the orchard spot to add a bee home in my garden.
Unfortunately, I didn't take photos at the third garden. It had an amazing variety of clematis plants, other flower gardens and a cozy clearing amongst the trees. No doubt a happy find for city wildlife.
Thanks to these gardeners who were willing to show how a wildlife friendly garden can also be beautiful and welcoming to the people visitors as well.
