Foliage Follow Up

Foliage follow-up to Bloom Day is hosted by Pam Penick of Digging Garden blog.

Rather than focus on the beautiful foliage of particular plants, here is a nearby garden that is mostly foliage due to its luxurious and glorious size.  More than anything else, this is a garden of mature trees.  I've blogged about this garden before, but another visit is sheer pleasure.

There's plenty of color in the understory plantings, but it isn't really necessary.

  5. Beautiful garden, even though it is classical and formal it looks inviting.

    I'll have to check, perhaps the lady is sending e-vites to a party.
