It’s almost time for our first open nursery and garden days for 2015, starting tomorrow, Friday. To create some interesting photographic moments, we’ve spread this white powder all over the garden.
Despite what you may have seen on television, PDN has only about 1/2″ on the ground, so the staff is here and working to make sure we’re ready for your visit. The roads near the nursery only have some slush remaining, which should be gone by days’ end.
PDN’ers Dave (front) and Thomas (back) are wrapping up construction of our new fence today. Dave recently moved here from Michigan, so we blame him for bringing the white stuff with him.
Here are a few garden shots if you can’t get here before the white stuff goes away…Agave ‘Grey Gator’ and the gold leaf Illicium ‘Florida Sunshine’ in the background.
Our Southwestern alpine garden is blanketed in white…great photo ops await!
I love the form of Celtis ‘Green Cascade’ (weeping Chinese Hackberry) accented beautifully by the snow.
The windmill palms on the patio at JLBG think they are back in their native Himalayas.
Artistic shots abound like this cephalotaxus (false yew).
and this lovely image of Nasella tenuissima (ponytail grass) in our four seasons garden.
Best of all, we’ve got greenhouses filled with flowering hellebores! We look forward to seeing you during the next two weekends!
