Garden Photo of the Day

Nina’s garden in Massachusetts, revisited

We’ve visited Nina Schlosberg’s garden in Waltham, Massachusetts, twice before, HERE and HERE. Today she’s sharing the height of spring!

She says, “This year spring has been nice, slow. and cool, unlike the hot rush of spring 2012. So, I’ve been able to photograph the progress in the blooming garden and also physically work in the garden – mostly pruning and weeding (what else is new!)

“I’m very pleased with the parrot tulip border. These flowers are spectacular when they’re starting to bloom and as they nod out. I also appreciate the brightness of the azaleas, primroses, and spirea shrubs. The neighborhood cat, Tang, keeps the hungry bunny rabbits at bay. Love him!”

Oh, the tulips, Nina, YUMMY! But while Tang is adorable, I miss our obligatory puppy pic… Happy spring!

***OK, everyone, keep going! Dig out your cameras, take a big long walk around your garden, and SEND ME PHOTOS!***

***One more thing…..have you always wondered what your fellow GPODers are like in person? Never thought you’d get a chance to meet them? Check this out…. While the GPOD isn’t officially a taunton forum, it’s close enough, and I wanted to extend the invite. Anybody at all interested? I’d be willing to search for some gardens to tour…

    Texture out the ying-yang! Enough flowers to give the right amount of color, and so loved seeing the species Tulipa
    ( bottom left, to the right). Rarely see anyone use those.

    I, too , love the specie tulips and use them in my own gardens as well as recommend them for clients. Love the first photo, especially! The tree adds wonderful structure and love that pop of pink!

    Nina, it's always a treat to see a previously featured garden in another season. Your spring garden has that special vibrancy of beginnings with everything looking so fresh and crisp. I love the stage your hosta are at in the picture they share with Tang...far enough along that you can literally count how many growth points there are as they just begin to unfurl.
    In last year's fall photos, you showed this great curly haired lady face statue (?). Does she stay our all winter and what is surrounded by in the spring?

  4. trashywoman62 05/23/2013

    Yummy is right, Michelle! The beautiful colors of the azaleas with the many shades of green in the hostas is wonderful! What wonderful composition, Nina! And I would venture to say you are a fellow Hostaholic as well as a Daylily fanatic!

    Can you identify the hostas in the first photo? I think I have that blue green one with the yellow center stripe at the front of the bed by the heucheras but wanted to make sure coz it is beautiful!

    And the Lilac between the spireas is a great combo too!

  5. trashywoman62 05/23/2013

    Nina, I was looking at the previous photos and noticed you did not respond to our comments/questions in April...like the name of the daylily that you had a close up shot. Do you recall it's name coz I, like Meander1, love that one!

  6. tractor1 05/23/2013

    From the first picture I see a great variety of plantings... I'd like to see some wide angle views from that rocking chair porch. And what's a "neighborhood cat"... a stray... someone needs to adopt Tang.

    Lush garden and artful photos!

  8. wittyone 05/23/2013

    Beautiful garden. Almost as beautiful as your cat.

  9. NevadaSue 05/23/2013

    Nina, I love your beds with the Azaleas, Rhodies, and Hosta's. Wonderful shade plants. Wish I was your neighbor so I could come wonder through the garden and see all the fun things you have. Thanks for the pictures.

  10. user-7006921 05/23/2013

    I really appreciate your comments on the photos! Thank you.
    I've always had good luck with the species tulips: I like their small size and bright bi-coloring and they are reliable for several years...They are called Bakeri Lilac Wonder from Colorblends.
    I'm not too sure which hostas are which but that side of my yard has Thunderbolt, June, possibly Guacamole and I can't remember any others....
    I'm also not sure of the daylily name in the previous post, but I will check my records (I may have moved them around from their original location).
    The woman's face in the previous post is an iron plaque that stays outside all year long enjoying all the seasons.
    Tang, the cat, lives somewhere in my neighborhood and is well cared for - he/she visits me when I'm out in the yard - never to be seen all winter long. We had a nice head-bumping reunion this spring.....

    Nina

    I seem to have missed your first round of pictures, so I got 2 great new views of your garden today. What a beautiful , lush yard you have. Thank you.

    Who would of thunk that there would be such exuberant garden goodness and beauty in Waltham !
    Such inspiration .

    From a former Waltham resident.

    Nina, thank you for replying to all our inquiring comments. I for one enjoy the Gardener's interaction to the bombardment of questions and usually learn about something I didn't realize I needed to know.

    Rare and strange: with a rare name (usually blue, but at the same time may also be gold elite), it is difficult to find, but to get rid of, there is often a special surprise, because fixed and affixes equipment, regardless of the blue-loaded or yellow equipment, are to the edge, in fact, is the best SP produced strange fortune depends on it.
    Open the list of your accomplishments, an achievement which lists the most rare and strange, but not all!
    In addition, rare and strange fall the best equipment is not 100% drop, but if you want, you could do nothing but find them, rs gold because they can. If you encounter, but you can not beat , please hurry to invite your friends list into your game together to engage it, and to drop more than a goodly portion of luck, but also a way of getting money to the Friends of the base!
    Daobao Wizard: Drop equipped with everything falling energy saving in this chapter, in addition to rare and strange part of falling!
    Drop the game settings, through research nethack (known as the originator of the Diablo setting items randomly drop) settings, blade and soul gold in fact, a setting is as follows:
    Rare and strange list of rare and strange list: this figure may be possible, each unique drop list of rare and strange, usually the main producing strange Need rings and necklaces;
    Blue strange list: this picture ordinary strange, it may appear strange blue, just blue strange installed it must be out of the blue, drop list is the list of the world fall in each of the sections that, that does not beyond the the chapter drop the other chapters will be out equipment. (FARM A1 friend Note, A4 was a good blue-loaded, drag a drag the corpse into the A4.)

    So, I'll give you advice:
    Careful and meticulous to a certain figure, the difficulty is not great, you can complete single FARM again, all the blame, all the stones, all the local touch it again, and then reset it again, and so forth NNNN times and times, you can put this figure there might be rare and strange touch, we also know this "specialty".
    Another supplement on suits and legendary equipment drop set: part of the world falling, broken jar and trash mobs and the like can be a goodly portion of luck, but the mobs die so much, the opportunity is always there; portion of the fixed BOSS out drop, multi-brush it, the opportunity is always there, after all, is fixed drop FARM when a lot of bad street but in the end is inevitable; part fall by rare and strange, the same can not be met seeking to encourage you and diligent traveled to every corner of the map; also part of falling exists only in the advanced chest, face.
    About rare and strange location: each figure with surface and underground (cave) in two parts, this strange wandering the entire surface of each figure, that might be buried in the ground, but mainly present in the underground; each figure has a fixed number of underground cave spawn points, and each picture to refresh the total number of points is fixed, but each time the refresh only a few points, to refresh a few point and which point to refresh are random; Members diligent little more effort, run a race map, summarize the law, there will always be the outcome! ! ! ! !
    Random number paradox: while the computer is set between 1-100 random samples of any single chance, from long statistical point of view, are the same, but in a short period of time during the actual operation, you extracted to a 1 and 100 chance is very small; the improved random numbers, often using double-random number divided by the ratio rounded, for example, taken from 1-100 where two duplicate number, and then divided by 2 rounded .
    Refer to the above extract random set model of random numbers, each picture looks much spawn points, but a subset of locations and 1 or 100 is actually more difficult to be able to get from another point of view, mean that other spawn points easily be able to get refreshed, this rule can be found by summing.
    My last most important conclusion: Some rare and strange appears only in the rare spawn points, this setting is also normal, everyone can sum up, there is always the law to be investigated!
