MY GARDEN PATH

Outside my back door is my walkway to the back yard.  Most of our yard is flat, but when you exit the kitchen door there's a steep slope to the back yard.   It's always been a challenge.  This year I was thinking that it had gotten too overgrown.  I changed my mind after I snapped this photo in the early morning on an overcast day.  My opinion completely changed.  I think I'll keep it just as it is--for now.

I've always loved the archway.  It soon will be filled with Clematis.  The Cherry Laurel have the white blooms, the Azaleas are covered in pink blooms and the Pieris Japonica have new red growth.  I love the lime green Creeping Jenny ground cover and the way the she wraps herself around the slate stepping stones.

AZALEA AND CHERRY LAUREL

AZALEA

I love the contrast of the glossy dark green leaves and the white blooms on the Cherry Laurel.

At the base of the path are my much loved perennial ferns.  They line the patio wall.

I have another field of ferns on the opposite patio wall.  Don't miss my silver garden sphere.  I placed it in to a bird bath in the garden.

I mentioned in a previous post that I purchased some Giant Allium from Holland Bulbs.  I've been monitoring their progress.  The stem is already very tall and I can't wait for the bulb to bloom.  This is one of three bulbs.  I layered it in front of one of my clay chimney pots.
