i interviewed a local artist today and he gave me a tour of his amazing garden. he has no lawn whatsoever, i love it!
the back yard is all ornamental, along with most of the front, but he does have around half a dozen rectangular veggie beds out front. nothing growing there right now. one of the beds is covered in a beautiful assortment of hens and chicks:
he trained apple trees (while they were saplings) to wind through this fence:
out front is one of the coolest trees i’ve ever seen:
he said it’s some kind of elm, and it grows this way naturally, all twisted on itself.
i want to go back there sometime...this is obviously not the ideal time of year for garden-ogling (gogling?). he said it looks best in may.
