If I could have this secret garden

My pocket garden is not looking so good.  I was going through some photographs and came across this one.  What a delightful little spot this is.  It's really a hidden garden within a giant garden.  In fact, this is only one of dozens of such clearings in the huge hillside Jim Scott has carved out overlooking a cove on Lake Martin in Alabama.  All the paths that connect the secret gardens are just as beautifully planted.

I'm thinking I don't have room for any grass, but I like the stone paving and bench.  That I could do.  And, I have some 'Sky Pencil' hollies for something vertical.

Jim has a zillion hydrangeas of every hue.  It must be beautiful over there with everything blooming so early.


  1. Have you been to Sandra Jonas's garden?

    If you like this, you'll love hers too.
