Aaaahhhh! So beautiful and restful! What lovely photos, Margaret. I never used to be a fan of shade gardening but now that I don't have much shade, how I wish for it. I could never accomplish the look you have, and the tranquility. Well done.

Oh Margaret, that was just a lovely stroll through your garden! You have such a keen eye for groupings and arrangement. Love the columbine!

In the 8th picture, what is that variegated plant between the rocks?
