To hide a view we aren’t crazy about, I spent some time stringing wire along the fence this summer and training star jasmine up them. Hopefully next summer it will be almost a full wall of blooming jasmine. That’s Japanese Barberry in the front because I’ve never been able to resist the ever changing colors of their leaves.
Old Asparagus, New Arugula
We had an incredible wind storm last weekend. The strongest we’ve had since we can remember. It stripped all the leaves off our fruit trees and littered our lawns with sequoia and oak debris. We made mini teepees with our finds.
As much as I enjoy the green lushness of spring, I really do like the stark gray of winter in our garden too.
I’d love to see what your garden looks like now. If you have pictures on a blog or flickr or somewhere, do share the link!
