A Garden Lush With Green--And Tree Ferns
Yesterday I had the good luck to visit another beautiful neighborhood garden. It's a traditional garden of lawns, mature shrubs, roses and other flowers--and some beautiful large tree ferns. Sorry, not sure of the genus--I'm not a fern person--Cyathea? Dicksonia?
It seems to me I used to see a lot more tree ferns in gardens--certainly more in areas nearer to the coast. Seven miles inland it's already nearly too dry for them. I enjoyed seeing them and they looked healthy. There was other beauty on display:
White and white, cool and fresh:
Paths to follow...
Places to lounge...
Whimsy and order.
And tree ferns.
This well behaved(!), compact(!), variegated(!) Alstroemeria was eye-catching:
But oh! Such grand, luxuriant ferns!
