I especially enjoy this part of the garden design process. I search for stock that I would buy for myself, my intention being to really please my new client. He may not know the difference but I am satisfied. And that energy is sure to be obvious.
I gather them all together and—sigh. Look how pretty! Wish I could duplicate it in my own yard. Maybe some time.
Selections were on sturdiness, reliability and easy care. Plus, the gardens will be gorgeous. Oh well, I only get to admire them for one more day. Like playing Dress Up. Then off to their new home.
