Faves

With over 200 varieties in this garden it’s hard to pick out which are my real Favorites. But I do have some that touch my heart in a special way and make me thrill with the joy of discovery every time I see them.  Sometimes there’s an historical connection, like with the redwoods I grew up with, or plants I learned about when touring the UK 40 years ago and went from Botanical Garden to Botanical Garden. Some are just special to me because I love a particular plant family, especially the Ericaceae. So many beautiful and special plants in that family that covers the globe. Sometimes I just plain like the  plant. And so I’ve put some of them in here to share with you. I hope you enjoy seeing them and maybe learning of some new varieties yourself. BTW, if you click on the plant image you’ll get an enlargement and a brief description I wrote for each of them.

  1. Must be time consuming and tiring to grow all these plants? Great job 🙂

  2. Thank you. And, since you’ve read my other blog and know some of my story I’ll be honest and say Yes it is tiring and it’s certainly time consuming. But it gives me so much more than it takes it’s worth it. I love plants and always have. So gardening is a way to stay in touch with my inner core nature even when I don’t feel too good. I take it easy and often pay for my work with too much pain but it’s OK. I love it. What more could I ask for? 😉
