Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Richly colored on a rainy day.

A rainy day brings out the rich colors of the chipped leaves, and I am constantly photo-documenting the gardens for comparisons as the years pass.  It is already astonishing to me to look at the photos from spring 2013, the year I retired.  But today’s photos are to document the evergreen shrubs I planted this summer.  They still seem so tiny, but will someday be tall and wide and will enclose the yard like a privacy fence, of sorts.  There are more I will add in spring of 2015, so the delicious greenery will brighten even the most gray winter day.  I like a gray day if it means getting some rain!
