Seasonal interest in Ellen Kirby's beautiful courtyard garden only adds to its allure.
"Here in Winston-Salem, NC (Zone 7), we have four distinct seasons. These photos show our courtyard garden where three crepe myrtles form a triangular border. With stones from a farmer's field at the base of the nearby Sauratown Mountains, the garden includes sedums, confers and perennials.
To this collection of photos I have added a few close-ups of favorite flowers including epimedium (early spring), pansies (spring) and clematis (summer). The “tour” begins in January when we usually have at least one good snowfall."
