Margot Navarre is grateful for her special garden.
We live less than a mile from downtown Bellevue, Washington. Our four-season garden is a tapestry of ground covers, native trees, shrubs, and a few speciality plants. We live in a place where homes are being torn down and replaced with megamansions without green spaces for gardening. We are grateful to have a third of an acre to play with and have tried to make the best of every part of it. The Cariocrinium gigantium (the largest species of any of the lily plants) bloomed May 17 (almost a month earlier than in previous years) and is always a cause for a celebration.
