Donna's reclaimed-pasture garden in Washington (8 photos)comments (29) October 4th, 2013 in blogs
Today's photos are from Donna Umland in Washington. She says, "My garden is located in eastern Washington state near Ellensburg, where my husband and I built our home on three acres of open range pasture 22 years ago. This area, known for its timothy hay production, is very windy during spring and summer and also has very late spring frosts that limit garden choices. The garden is a mixture of shrubs, perennials, and annuals. I've used many grasses, which seem made for windy sites. Roses also do well. Many annuals, which I start in my greenhouse, cannot be set out until at least mid-May. As you can see my garden is full of Verbena bonariensis, which reseeds ubiquitously. I absolutely love this scrim plant and find it is so easy to pull up where I don't really want it." Gorgeous, Donna! We need more photos, for sure.
