If you have read my blog for any amount of time you have probably read about my struggles over time with what I call my Circle Garden. I have a rather relaxed gardening style but I have always wanted a Knot Garden which to me is very formal. My efforts so far have been dismal. I will write about that another day.
Right now the Circle is looking fairly good and I am pleased with it's transformation. At least I am willing to share it on Six on Saturday, the meme that Jon the Propagator hosts every Saturday, mainly because there are six paths that spin off this Circle Garden. I am going to give you the six views you get when coming to the Circle from one of the paths. When you enter the garden from the path that goes around the East side of the house this is the view you get.
From the path from the patio you get this view. This is the view I see most often. I am usually looking out the kitchen door this way or entering the garden from the patio to here.
If I enter this area from the Hydrangea Walk I see this.
Coming back from the barn toward the house and Circle you would see this.
Walking along the fence and looking back you see this.
As you follow around the fence line you come to another path that you could take back toward the Circle to here.
As you can see there is a variety of grasses, plants, herbs and rocks along with the center focal point being the dogwood Cornus Rudtan ‘Celestial Shadow’.
If you would like to see what all everyone is posting for their Six on Saturday you can pop over to Jon the Propagator's blog and check it out.
