Have a Seat.....Fertilizer Friday




On a walk about a month ago I saw this enchanting yard that beckoned me.  The garden seat of wrought iron (there's my love of wrought iron again) blends into the landscape, not at all obscuring the garden around it, which is one thing I love about the use of wrought iron.  It all seems so welcoming.
In my own backyard are my glider bench and stationary chair (far right) also in wrought iron.  A favourite place to sit and enjoy the pond, the garden and the firepit.  In the background is a small myriad of plants including Hakuro Nishiki Willow, Blue Oat Grass, Dwarf Chinese Juniper (groundcover and topiaried form) Three Flowered Maple, Tolleson`s Weeping Juniper, Mint Julep Juniper, and Water Iris (name forgotten).
Not much blooming anymore except my rose and clematis.  Writing this blog makes it necessary for me to get out and photograph my garden in progress and I find things lacking, like fall bloom!  But it does have pretty good bones, right?

I can understand why that garden caught your eye ... lovely shots of a lovely garden! You're so right about wrought iron garden furniture ... it looks fantastic and allows an uninterrupted view of the garden. What a great spot around your pond ... very nice! Great bones!

Hi Shirley, Love that yard you photographed on your walk. You have some nice things planted and landscaped and someday it will be flourishing again. In the meantime, the yard and furniture are lovely and make a nice place to sit and relax. Happy Autumn!

Oh, your garden has lovely, lovely bones! I really love your variety of trees and grasses. I just bought a three flowered maple this spring and think it's the neatest deciduous tree we own. (And wrought iron is a MUST around our place...we have more wrought iron than sense, but we love it, too--and we have the same glider...small world!)
