    Very interesting garden, Bob. Cindy’s wonderful images certainly seem to do it justice. Many thanks for posting.

      Sure. There are so many images on the disks, it gives me the opportunity to post pictures when nothing is going on in the garden. Nothing happening and it’s sunny, dry, breezy, and almost 70F. It’s so strange to have nothing blooming in the rock gardens.
      I have something completely different to follow this.

    Her images certainly captured it well, from my brief visit this August that didn’t do so well! This post especially…he’s a Tucsonan at heart, with those colored hardscape features and walls. Talk about plantsmanship and pushing Denver beyond the plant stodginess that midwestern-wannabes keep rehashing in even Abq! Wow, wow, wow.

    I really like his contrast of a subtle, but substantial water feature to the xeric-osity surrounding it. (new word)

    Crowded is good indeed.

    • paridevita says:

      Yes, crowded is definitely good. Right now my garden looks almost completely empty, but I keep forgetting that I tossed or gave away a bunch of plants last year to make room for new ones this year. Being surrounded by plants is about as good as being surrounded by puppies.

    Love this garden with the bold wall colors & interesting objets! “Being surrounded by plants is about as good as being surrounded by puppies.” Inspired!

    • paridevita says:

      Yes, well chosen objets de jardin are good. How come some people can pick the perfect things, and all I have is my big metal chicken? True, the chicken is the embodiment of class and stuff, but I kind of envy the skill with which these were chosen, and placed. Not to mention the plants.

  5. Wow, I love the purple wall, and the outbuilding, and those swirly metal things.

    • paridevita says:

      It’s a really cool garden, and one thing about it that makes it cool is that it really shows the possibilities of what you can do here, beside plant a bunch of eastern-style perennials.

  6. I hope you don’t mind that I pinned a few of these to Pinterest, just so fabulous (helps me find them again, has link direct to your blog, but I should have asked first, I just got in a bit of a frenzy over that purple wall).
