Garden journal entry


May 08, 2010. Took my parents to Morris Arboretum today. We'd never been there, and were impressed with the diverse gardens and scenery, on a large plot tucked into the bustling suburbs of Philadelphia. This nearly man-high wall is part of the rose garden (which housed a much larger variety of plants than its name suggests). The tapestry of trailing and tufted plants tucked in between the stone joints was stunning, and makes me wish I had a natural stone wall to attempt my own version.
Picked up a few shade plants at the plant sale the arboretum just happened to be running on the day of our visit - including a few trilliums, which I hope will do well in the patch of our back yard island newly anointed as "woodland garden".
