Creating harmony, simplicity and peace in the landscape......

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help.

Gardening is an instrument of grace. "

My first - very short - video garden tour!

I have joined the video revolution with this very short tour of my postage stamp garden and just as I began my neighbor chose to open his long ladder....

so here is a brief tour - with sound effects to boot!

The photos below show what my garden loooked like before....

Rocks and soil for mounding and bordering along drystream


layout for dry stream that you see in the video


  1. thanks for the tour - it all looks lovely.

  2. Nice dry stream bed; very nice! And you can go ahead an call it Lysimachia nummularia. We're with ya.

  3. African Aussie - THANKS!
    Susan - you knew I was going to say that and then stopped...thanks for the heads up - so here I go: carex varigata, iris sibirica 'Caesar's brother'and pennisetum alo. 'Hameln' ...I hope to give tours of the more expansive gardens and will share all the names...

  4. Very pretty and informative, as always. Thank you!

  5. Colleen, I try to insert something of interest in every post...thanks for commenting!

  6. Nice video and what a beautiful yard. I'd love to add a siberian iris to one of my beds, especially after seeing yours, but I'm afraid it would flounder in our alkaline soils. Looking forward to more videos.

  7. Love the garden and especially the dry pond. Nice concept and so beautiful.. :-)


Hi there! I would love to hear from you....
