For Elisabeth

because I said I would.

Here’s a photo at dawn…

The furniture belongs to Dennis, who lives upstairs. Somebody had left behind the cement seat (and the flower pots), so, I inherited them. Somebody painted the cement patio blue and its the most heavenly shade of blue! Other colors from previous paint jobs show through.

We tried to put grass in the little areas behind the tree. It died. So, now, we have a couple of different kinds of ground covers trying their best to fill in. One is going crazy. The ornamental peanut, though, is having the hardest time, but I refuse to give up on it.

I really do think the garden is enchanted, and I have no idea why…

And above, is the picture of one of the garden areas taken at dusk…

This thing, it looks like a giant pinwheel. Mike found it. We had gone to buy some bamboo for the front, and he noticed it at a garage sale on his way to meet me. He said, you have to see this. It would be terrific in your garden.

I agreed. That surprised him. So, then we had to figure out a way to load it in the car. Bleeding hearts have grown all over it, and have rooted it to the spot. I love that it’s all crooked and rusted.

I dream about your garden, he told me.

Anyway, this old garden, Mike figured out how to coax it back.

The plan was there, it just needed to be filled in with the right things. I knew Mike could do it…

  1. Oh, looks amazing Christine 🙂 So creative and lushful. Like it. How fun with the pinwheel. Can you send him over, Mike, the intuitive gardener? 😉 Thanks so much for showing me. /Elisabeth
