If I could have this secret garden
My pocket garden is not looking so good. I was going through some photographs and came across this one. What a delightful little spot this is. It's really a hidden garden within a giant garden. In fact, this is only one of dozens of such clearings in the huge hillside Jim Scott has carved out overlooking a cove on Lake Martin in Alabama. All the paths that connect the secret gardens are just as beautifully planted.
I'm thinking I don't have room for any grass, but I like the stone paving and bench. That I could do. And, I have some 'Sky Pencil' hollies for something vertical.
Jim has a zillion hydrangeas of every hue. It must be beautiful over there with everything blooming so early.
