Today’s photos are from Marcia Brown in Windsor Mill, Maryland. We featured Marcia’s garden back in January (refresh your memory here), and she wrote back last week to show off one of her recent projects and some spring flowers.
She says, “Here are some spring shots from my garden. I built the rustic tuteur based on the one featured on FineGardening.com. Or I should say my husband built it, with me as the helper. The tuteur sits in the center of the perennial garden. The rock walls there had to rebuilt because we made the base of the tuteur too big to fit.
“I have a clematis which will grow to 12 feet tall that will be perfect for this tuteur. There are forget-me-nots (Myosotis sylvestris) planted there too. The pink flowers in the 4th and 5th photos are bleeding hearts (Dicentra spectabilis) and the white flower is a bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis). ”
I can’t wait until you send us photos of the tuteur filled with clematis blooms, Marcia! Please do update us. And I’m still LOVING your house…
