Revisiting a garden in which I have worked over the years is always rewarding. Stone steps are gradually welcomed by creeping plants and the fronds of nearby bushes. Crevices in garden walls become homes for trailing succulents and tucked ornaments. Vines utilize posts and screens as support, and in return, shower shade and flowers over the garden. A sense of settling in contradicts the previous environment of construction.
A small, open potting shed that I built a few years ago has been well used by the property owners. The stone bench built into the drystack wall is a lovely place to rest while gardening. This wall is an older part of the garden, and now the owners have expanded the garden and added a new greenhouse.
