Garden Update

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Today I gathered the first flower bouquet of the year from our gardens.   No more flowers from Shaw’s until frost!  That means more time moseying, gathering, and arranging.  It is so easy with flowers from your garden, because they all look good together.  I love, love, love homegrown flower displays.

The new gardens are still a work in progress.  At this time we are waiting for several more plant groups (Eupatorium ‘Little Joe’, some asters, and perovskia).  I also have to fill in the vegetable section.  All in all, it is coming along very well.  Many, many thanks again to Equinox Valley Nursery (www.equinoxvalleynursery.com) for searching for, gathering, and delivering plants on my list, even though it is their busiest time of the year.  They are some of the best people you could ever meet.  I hope you stop in on your next visit to the inn.

Here are a few photos Yoshio took last week of the labyrinth and new gardens.

If you are not interested in gardens, please excuse me.  After almost two years at Ormsby Hill, my true nature has finally found its way home.  Indulging my passion will help me honor myself, the inn, and you too.
