I’m very happy today to share another season of Heather’s Garden in Michigan. Heather is married to my nephew James. Photos today by Heather Murphy. (Slight editing and mosaics by yours-truly.) Thanks again Heather for your generosity. For several weekends toward the end of May, Heather was working in the garden. First with her extensive perennials and then adding annuals. The overall effect is a lush green oasis in suburbia.
I love living in Florida and having tropical flowers, but I do miss the plants that are happy further north, like hostas, lilacs, and all the spring bulbs. I live vicariously through beautiful photos of northern gardens. Since I’ve spent time in Heather’s garden, I can tell you that it is a relaxing cozy place. Through the years since they bought the house, she has worked on developing her perennials while James usually has a wood working project for each year like building the barbecue stand or flower boxes. The end result is both beautiful and functional.
I hope you enjoyed this visit to an early garden in Michigan. I know in another month it will be even more beautiful.
