Today we’re in northeastern Ohio visiting with Criss. We’ve visited Criss before (Criss’s Ohio Garden), and it is always a pleasure to return to this beautiful garden.
In the back of the east yard, an arbor is covered in orange mandarin honeysuckle (Lonicera ‘Mandarin’, Zones 4–9), a Weigela ‘Wine and Roses’ (Zones 4–8) blooms to the left of the arbor, and Weigela ‘Red Prince’ flowers in the foreground.
Moving into the west yard, this is the secret garden, with paver circles that Criss installed this summer. Tiger lilies (Lilium lancifolium, Zones 3–9) and hydrangeas (Hydrangea paniculata, Zones 3–8) are in bloom.
A stumpery has a resident fairy. Criss put the fairy there, but the stump grew the tiny perfect mushroom in front of her all on its own.
A small pond is in the fenced garden too.
