Paving


Julie asked if we did our own paving. The answer is no. The garden has had a lot of work done at different times by two wonderful landscape artists Alex Strachan and Jim Coghill ... the driveway, paths, stone walls and the circle down the back under the liquid amber.

This is the driveway which sweeps around a big cyprus pine. Its edge is softened by Mondo Grass that has grown thick and luxurious over the many years since it was planted. Note the fallen pine needles, I do more sweeping in the garden than I do in the house!

Reflection:
Revelation 21:2, 21 (New International Version)
"I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband ... The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass. "

  1. It is the most beautiful of curves ... your mondo grass is more luxuriant than mine which has that tell-tale dead tip look.

    I like the patina of fallen needles especially on bricks that are already nicely textured.
