Visit my garden during the Enumclaw Garden tour on June 22 - all proceeds go to the Care Van for our regional hospital. .
My blue and yellow garden in May. Learn how to have more drama without the drinking problems in your garden. These plants are drought, slug and deer resistant. Many of my talks teach what plants to grow that are the most practical for different climates. Note the blue bird house and blue painted gate in the background. This is because I have trouble growing blue delphiniums - so I use blue paint instead.
Clip the foliage of hellebores in early spring so you can better see the blooms. Love that these are right below a window so I can see them from indoors.
