The Gardener's Eye
Well clipped balls!
Thanks, I have been getting of practice over the years.
I very much like the placement of the boxwood, particularly as shown in the 2nd photo. The frost is frosting on the cake.
I tried to get a pleasing arrangement, Pat. I am thinking of removing several of the box along the yew hedge. Things will get crowded in time and I will use them in other parts of the garden.
Hello, I discovered your garden and I find it very beautiful in the frost
Hi Anny. I got a look at your blog; it is very nice. Thanks for commenting.
Box, Granite and Frost and Bare Bones, Michael! I never get to see my garden like this - it gives a remarkable idea of structure.
Faisal, you need structure in New Hampshire. There is a long season without foliage or flower. This morning was just a pretty as mid-summer to my eye. I never thought of that as an advantage before.
I like how some of these are formally placed, while others seemed to have just rolled in to the garden.
Les,I was thinking of moving some of the boxwoods and scatter them in the garden and lawn of the lower garden. Instead of 'Fallingwater', it would be 'Rollingballs'. It would make the lower garden less formal and more whimsical.
J'aime aussi, lorsque l'hiver s'installe, retrouver le jardin dénudé qui nous présente son architecture et nous emporte vers des rêves de travaux futurs qui lui redonneront, la luxuriance des volumes parfumés et colorés sous les chants d'oiseaux. Ainsi va le cycle de la vie.Joyeux Noël à vous et à tous vos lecteurs et belle fêtes de fin d'année.Amitiés.Roger
Merci Roger. Bonne Année!!
Ich finde deinen Garten wunderschön...sehr geschackvoll!Er hat viele Elemente, die ich mir auch gerne so anlegen würde....Am meisten bin ich von deinem Buchs begeistert....Viele Grüße Erwin
Thank you, Erwin. I was fortunate to have a granite retaining wall and a slope as a starting point. I have been slowly adding granite steps and accents. The box balls have begun to make a presence which has been really lovely in the frost and light snow.
