OUR WISCONSIN HOME
My husband takes care of the grass, trees, bushes and the woods. My jobs are all the flower beds. Here I used drought tolerant plants. Hawthorne Tree, white flowers in Spring and orange berries in Fall that hold on all Winter. Around the Hawthorne are Catmint 'Walkers Low' for Spring and Summer color. Late Summer and Fall is Russian Sage. In the flower bed are perennials: Autumn Joy Sedum, Coral Bells 'Purple Palace', Basket of Gold for Spring bloom with silver foliage for all season interest. I also use annuals, orange marigolds and blue ageratums. Dave uses burgundy foliage bushes for interest 3 seasons. Diablo Ninebark and Sandcherries. A new addiition to the front yard is a Crimson King Maple. I hope it makes it through our COLD Winter.
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
Landscapes are usually most stunning during those times of the year when you can actually see the ground. But there is an eerie beauty to a yard covered in freshly fallen snow as well.
