The first full haircut of the time of vegetation is done. To celebrate there will be a little garden party tomorrow. Assorted beverages and delicious foods will be served. The basement patio is now open for dining. So is anywhere else people need to sit. Even for a small party my seating is limited.
The paths are cleared and the garden is open for botanizing.
I did invite some plant people. It will be interesting to see what draws their attention. This draws my attention. I love the combination of textures.
It really is a garden now.
It is a space that lures you in. While the view from above is superb and I am so lucky to have it, the garden must be entered to be experienced. Before I start cooking tomorrow, I will be entering the garden for slow, quiet stroll.
Will anyone find the deep red Trillium vaseyi?
Even harder to find are the bloom stalks of the Puttyroot Orchid, Aplectrum hyemale.
I know where to look.
