Nicki Snoblin in Lake Bluff, Illinois, found a wonderful little treasure to share with us.
Today I would like to share some photos of a tiny garden in an unexpected place in my neighborhood. I don’t know who owns it, but it’s clearly a labor of love. Encountering a garden like this is like getting a wonderful gift.
This garden is nestled under two oak trees in a carveout between a parking lot and an alley, just off a major two-lane road. It’s packed full of eclectic edging and path materials, plants in pots and in the ground, and half-hidden delights.
The centerpiece of the garden is a three-level fountain.
A rectangular planter contains what I think is a rooted cutting from the hibiscus, about to bloom.
