READER PHOTOS! Sara's garden in California, revisitedcomments (20) July 19th, 2012 in blogs
We've visited Sara Malone's garden in Petaluma, California, twice before (refresh your memory HERE and HERE.) Both posts focused on how spectacular this garden looks in winter. Today, Sara's giving us a glimpse of the garden in summer. Sara says, "The conventional wisdom is that the foliage garden takes a back seat to floriferous displays in the summer months, but you can see from these images that Jan LeCocq took that there is a riot of color out there among the leaves! From reds through orange to yellow, on to purples, maroons, dazzling blues and, of course, green, the foliage lights up the landscape and provides a rich brocade of colors and textures. The garden features over 200 different conifer varieties as well as several dozen Japanese maples, a host of dwarf Ginkgo varieties, and many deciduous shrubs such as Viburnum, Fothergilla, Corylopsis and Hamamelis. To our delight, foliage varies throughout the seasons and provides something new almost every day. See more on our blog (http://formandfoliage.wordpress.com/)." Yup, just as gorgeous in sumer. Thanks, Sara and Jan!
