This is the third installment in my series of seasonal tours through different parts of Deb's Garden. Today we will look at the past year in the Lady Garden. The Lady Garden is tucked into a clearing in the woods down from the patio next to the house. This garden will always be true to its sylvan roots, a wood nymph rather than a lady of society. It is a new garden, still gawky, untamed and needing refinement. But there are some changes that have happened over the months.
First, lets walk toward the Lady Garden on the wide path which leads from the lower front lawn. Here are some views as you come to the main entrance of the garden:
If you turn around from inside the garden and look back toward the lower lawn, you see one of my favorite views. The large building is my neighbor's workshop. I planted the evergreen trees on our property line to screen it, and they have done a good job:
Here are views of the arbor that marks one end of the Lady Garden. It is a great spot for watching wildlife. Many birds, including a pair of owls, live in the nearby trees:
Next to the Lady Garden is a small footpath that leads up a slope, where it joins the front garden near the house:
Finally, opposite the arbor is the end where the Lady of the Garden lives. I recently added the rock border to make a planting area. Spring bulbs are arriving soon and will be planted here:
No doubt, many changes to the Lady Garden will occur with the coming seasons. It will be fun to one day look back and see it in its youth. Thanks for touring with me. By the way, this is my 100th post, since I began my blog last year on October 5, 2009. That is something to celebrate, and more seasonal installments are coming!
