Spring time in Oregon is one of the 7 wonders of the natural world. Here are some images from Mrs Pliny's and my garden. We set every stone and planted every thing in the garden. I have the aching back to prove it. It's kind of a Japanese, cottage, English, Northwest fusion garden of sorts. In other words we plant and add whatever strikes our fancy at the time. Our British neighbor refers to it as rather higaldy pigaldy (sp?). We like that whether it was meant as a complement or not... We don't use any chemicals of any kind other than some organic fertilizer. We're such old hippies that we have a worm bin that processes our kitchen waste and produces the most amazing rich soil. My little digital camera doesn't do the colors justice. We're lucky to have blooms in the garden from February through November. Hope you enjoy the album half as much as we enjoy the gardening.
