2017 Garden So Far



The Green Winter Garden



The slightly Frosty Garden
No hard frosts this year


The Misty Garden



The in between garden 



The Sunny Garden


The Spring Garden



and the Corkscrew Hazel 
which is overwhelming me right now
I pruned it back hard last year and it is again needing a lot of attention and 'I don't know where to start!'
Back issues do not help.
How glad I am that we removed so many shrubs in the last 2 years

My neighbor has corkscrew in a pot and it is not doing very well.
As always your garden is well keep.

Nice chronicle of the garden in different seasons and light. Gardening is very hard on my back, especially weeding. I don't think I've ever seen a Corkscrew Hazel. Hope you are having a nice weekend.

The garden looks quite delightful in all circumstances, though the sun makes me want to visit and stay awhile. 🌿 I don't know what a corkscrew Hazel is, but it sounds nasty to prune. Pace yourself. A happy spring to you, Barbara.

I like all the versions of your garden, but especially the spring. And I know I will love the summer version even more!

It's such fun to see it in all seasons. I love those corkscrew branches, but it sounds like our coral trees - constant pruning.
