Glen Park Entry Garden


I ran across this perfect succulent garden on my way to a birthday party in Glen Park.  The colors are amazing and the textures are flawless.   Not to mention each plant was a true specimen.  Kudos to the owner, design and installer, whomever they may be.

Hedges

Before this trip, I didn't have much to say about hedges other than banality.  There are a few things I retained from this experience and to have fun with hedges is one of those ideas.  The gardens at Hidcote pushed my edge.  In the top photo we see two different plants hedge into a single plane.  I think those are Yews with a Boxwood silhouette.

Astonishing. (If you haven't noticed, this trip has also made me learn more superlatives.)



 One comprised of deciduous Copper Beech and evergreen Holly.







Another Yew and Boxwood structure.
