Ellen: Your flower & veggie mixes are lovely....Could you kindly tell us the name of the large tree with the red blooms in the background of photo #3? Thanks...
Irv: Your photos reflect the true natural feeling in your garden...you've created a wonderful environment for animals and humans alike...a botanical Disneyland. Well done.
To Plant Lady 55: Our Sango-Kaku tree is about 6 yrs. old and almost 14' high...you could prune yours to desired height. The tree is deciduous and the bark turns a gorgeous coral red in winter...making it a focal point in the garden for months.
Thanks to all for your nice comments...to answer your questions: Yes, Dogwoods can thrive in Marin County....we have a Cornus "Cherokee" and a Cornus Convolusa varigata that are doing well. The white flowered tree in the final pic is a Viburnum plicatum 'Tomentosum'-Doublefile (it has larger flowers positioned horizontally) Yes, we share our garden with groups from The Garden Conservancy, Pacific Horticulture,etc....and would be happy to give a private tour for anyone interested.The garden has slowly evolved over the years and continues to change. Mary and I do all the plant selection, garden maintenance and we love it.
Sheila: One of your wonderful pots has a "face"...could you share where you found this pot and does the manufacturer make it commercially ? Thanks.
