The year 2015 in the garden was wonderful because I mostly ignored it. Instead of working every spare minute as I did for the garden tour in 2014, I simply puttered when I had time. I made a few adjustments, bought a handful of plants, weeded, but really just enjoyed it. Lovely how the garden changes with each month as it wakes, thrives, then sleeps again.
My giant Viburnum always rings in the new year with flowers in January.
Camellias brighten February.
In March the Petasites blooms before leafing out
Bulbs are blooming everywhere in April.
By May, the driveway border thrives with color.
In June, perennials and herbs start to bloom.
The garden’s packed and humming along in July.
In August the containers are busting out.
My tender hibiscus shows its love in September.
Often the salvia lasts into October
My Sumac lights up in November.
Pinched by frost, the garden sleeps in December.
