Garden Gallery: An Oregon Coast Garden

This Oregon coast garden created by Mosaic Gardens is full of beautiful ideas.  There is nothing typical about this design.  Catching my eye are the over-sized arbor over the ‘L’ shaped bench.  Typically you might see a narrower arbour over a single bench.

The planting is striking and bold, combining well known plants but in slightly lesser favored varieties.  (like the yellow Kniphofia and the fresh green Japanese maple, as opposed to the typical red)

The Andy Goldsworthy-esque stone sculpture in the gravel courtyard is also a strikingly simple  feature.

As is the Birch tunnel.

And the elegant bowl in the circle patio. And the use of purple leaved plants through out to give a unifying style.  So many things to admire…what is your favorite?

  1. They are all my favorite. Gardening is one of many reasons I loved living in the Northwest for 10 years.

My husband and I have been day dreaming about turning our lower and unused three stall horse barn into some sort of fun summer house.  It seems like a big challenge that is very far down of the ‘to do’ list….but is nonetheless fun to dream about…. Somewhat along the same lines, I am intrigued…

A Mousie Thank You

Being nominated for three Mouse and Trowel Awards was in itself an overwhelmingly flattering experience, but what came next was beyond extraordinary.  When I told you about being nominated sooooo many of you responded with the kindest notes.  I have archived all of them and will, on my most de-motivated days re-read them, because they…

Ode to a Zip Tie – The best garden tool ever!

My husband and I were victimized for the first time yesterday by deer. (I am ignoring my hopelessly denuded rhododendrons). They had never bothered to go over the 3 ft fence that we have around our veggie garden and I lived with a false confidence. But yesterday we lost all our cucumbers, soldier beans, soybeans,…
