As usual the Garden Tour by the Lunaria League had some fantastic gardens.
I just love nosing around in other people's back yards and the Garden Tour presents the perfect opportunity to do just that without being arrested!
Vanessa and Chris accompanied us this year and since they're having a house built they were particularly interested in the landscaping elements and use of trees and shrubs.
Here they are on the right perusing that nice spruce.
I thought this planter would look fantastic in our garden.
Isn't this nice?
This is one huge Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans). I wish you could see just how large that trunk is.
I loved the way this gardener tucked hens and chicks into crevices in the rocks around their stream.
When Vanessa saw this tranquil pond she asked why our rocks aren't covered with moss. Anyone know the trick to this? We've had no success with the yogurt painting method.
Great tour. Really enjoyed it.
And it seems as if summer has arrived in Boise!
