One dreary day last week, Rob decided he needed breakfast on the way to work, so we stopped at the Bridgewater Village Store on our way in. I took the opportunity while he was inside to snap some pics (please forgive the cell phone-quality pics) of this year's roadside garden! Long-time GPODers might be familiar with this little hell strip. Each year the folks at Maywood Gardens, which owns this little complex, design a new planting for this area, and I look forward to it every year. (refresh your memory HERE, HERE, & HERE) It's finally coming into its own now for this year. What do you think? I really like the understated but dramatic color scheme, and the heavy reliance on awesome foliage. They continued it into the beds in front of the building, and designed some super nice containers, too. Enjoy!
