Report From An Opinionated Gardener – September 9
It is the night before Jesse and Maya’s wedding. Jess is the son of our dear friends, Phil and Nan, and four years ago when we bought to Poison Ivy Acres this couple helped us move in. When Jesse got out of the moving van, he looked around and asked, “Can we get married here?” The answer, of course, was yes.
Since that time we’ve made many additions and changes to this landscape and we’re pleased to have it as a background for the wedding. The gardens aren’t perfect, of course, and if time and money were never ending I could add more and adjust forever… there is always a time in gardening and life when it’s time to say, “It is how it is and so it’s already perfect.”
I spent the day doing flowers, and will have better pictures tomorrow when they are in place and the light is better. In the meantime, here are some photos of today’s events.
