I managed to squeeze in a visit to all the sites on this tour of WHPS members' gardens in the Nakoma neighborhood just before we left on vacation. As usual, the gardens were great and so were the plants.
I was particularly struck by this group of Martagon lilies underplanted with Astrantia. Many of us grow Martagons but this combination is inspired. Not surprising since it's in the garden of our favorite Emeritus prof, Ed Hasselkus.
This front garden down the street from Ed's caught my eye with it's repetition of both pots . . .
and plants to create a casually formal display.
