Yes, summer is still in high gear in the Pacific Northwest, but it does feel as if we’re seeing the back side of the hot weather’s last hurrah. As the angle of light settles lower, a sense of the changing seasons is setting in; routines are on track for a big shift as schools ease back into session and thoughts of fall garden projects percolate into our consciousness. ..

I hope you enjoy this video walk-through of a client's garden in Vancouver, Washington. In addition to colorful perennials and a select assortment of carefully-chosen shrubs, the garden features a custom designed and professionally installed privacy screen made of steel slats of varying heights laid out in a graceful undulating curve between basalt columns. ..

I’ve been away from my garden for longer than usual of late. Physically out of the area for about two weeks and too busy to engage with it for about two weeks before that due to my schedule. These absences were partly planned, partly unexpected and for a duration longer than initially expected. Vacations and trips, planned or otherwise, are commonplace—so I’m not calling that out as unusual per se. But I did find myself musing on the state of my garden when I returned this last time. ..

This video is a walk-n-talk through my personal garden. In it, I show you six shrubs that are looking particularly good and that have done very well for me in my Portland, Oregon, USDA zone 8 garden. It is by no means a comprehensive account of what I’m growing—more a set of informal and impromptu comments on a few plants in my back garden that seemed to raise their hand to say “pick me” as I strolled my garden that morning. ..

In recognition of National Pollinator Week (June 17-23, 2019), I'm spotlighting plants and combos that perform the important work of providing hospitality for these illustrious garden guests. Planting a variety of flowering plants, selected to offer a steady succession of pollen-producing blooms over many months, will keep your garden abuzz with activity and, of course you'll get to enjoy the gorgeous results all season long. ..

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you’ve heard me talk about the “re-boot” I’m undertaking in parts of my garden at home. This past year I’ve been able to indulge my plant lust without remorse. I’ve had lots of open ground to work with due to heavy edits I’ve been doing in my front, side, and back gardens. ..

Don't blink. It goes fast this time of year. Especially when there's a spike in temps such as what we Portlanders are experiencing this week. ..

One of the great pleasures of working from a home-based studio is that it allows me to take quick walkabouts throughout the day to enjoy the ever-evolving happenings in my personal garden. ..

It's been a busy and fun week filled with lots of garden-y goodness. I'm having a blast working in my own garden. I'm taking extra care as I prepare for the summer season as I'll be welcoming scores of garden-lovers from the Northwest into my garden this June. (It'll be open on the Friday leg of the garden tours that are part of the HPSO Study Weekend.) I work best under a deadline, so this has been perfect. The bonus is that summer is only just beginning by tour time, so my husband and I will be able to enjoy it all season long. ..

The spring planting sprint is well underway and the race is on in my garden at home and in the client gardens we have in production. I've had my eyes open this week and this post shares some of the highlights from this week. It's a small taste, but I hope you enjoy. ..
