My friend L. will be visiting her mother on the east coast soon, and I knew she'd enjoy seeing what the garden looks like. "Have a look at the blog and print a few pictures," I said. "I'll send you some links."

Then looking for links, I realized the error of my ways. Only about half the posts are about the garden - the rest are about hiking, garden shows, and other fascinating topics - and of those, many have close-ups.

So, here's the tour. Wish you were here to smell the sages and hear the birds and the fountain.
