Les jardins de rocailles

Rock gardens. Our summers always start with moving rocks around. Great to get the back and knees in shape for a long summer of running around in the woods and building things. No toes were crushed over the past couple of weeks, but we did manage to pull together a few gardens from the rubble in between various trips. Behold:

And out back, even more rebuilding of formerly lovely, but abandoned/neglected terraced gardens around the patio.

To the left of this set of terraces, we significantly rebuilt the wall that had basically completely toppled over and was a condominium for chipmunks. We did that one today, and have no pictures yet…but it’s looking really nice, and houses my collection of columbines. Here are a few of them – they are especially stunning now, all in bloom.

I have a work trip this week, but KJ plans to start on the rock steps that lead to the back yard. Luckily we have more rocks than anything else here, so no shortage of materials.
