What a grand paradise you have made for yourself! I really enjoyed the tour and also sat on the lovely chair in Pic #5. Beautiful.

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?

Anna, if it were possible, I would love to duplicate it here--it's pretty cold where Margaret lives. Hilarious!
Margaret, hoping we get to see more photographs of all your garden, it is so lovely. Lovey dubby
