Are you ready for another garden tour? My friend Christy M.'s garden is the garden we will be touring today. Her garden will be featured on the Clarksville Montgomery County Master Gardener tour scheduled for June 14th. If you'd like to see not only Christy's garden but five other beautiful gardens in person contact Karla at the Montgomery County Extension office at (931)648-5725. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased right up to tour day. Christy's garden will also be featured on Tennessee Volunteer Gardener so watch for it! Today and Friday you will get a virtual tour by way of my camera so let's go touring.
Don't you love Christy's garden bed?? The quilt of petunias is growing in well. By the time the tour comes around I bet that quilt will be trailing down the sides of the bed.
Christy does and awesome job of not only combining plant colors but also plant textures. Here is a red, white, and blue color combo.
A sweet little patio in the center of the backyard is a destination spot. Can you see Christy's cute little garden cottage in the back right area of this photo? We shall see it more of it later but know that Christy's style of gardening is cottage gardening. This cottage plays a big role in that style of gardening.
How about a hen and some of her chicks that you need not feed or water? Christy's garden is full of folksy and whimsical garden art.
Salvia and irises as a combo.
A beautiful columbine. There are many special columbines in this garden. This one was one of the best I've ever seen.
It is the time of year that peonies take center stage in the garden. Peonies are right at home in a cottage or perennial garden. No garden should be without peonies.
More of the combos.
Finally, a beautiful vignette displaying what I think are Japanese irises. This garden is full of beautiful views. Come back Friday for more combos and views and some close up of that cottage....
