I have been scurrying around trying to whip my “hidden urban garden” into shape for visitors this late afternoon and early evening. Gardens will be viewed on a self guided walking tour to benefit garden projects in the city. My garden is the one on the right at the end of the ferns and hosta.
THE SECRET GARDEN was a favorite book of mine years ago so when we took this first floor apartment, I just had to have a tiny, hidden garden. The yards from the old rectory and ours connect and so my garden is also included. It is a total shade garden and I love it. We have a fire pit for cools evenings and also serves as a grill.
I have used some color with shade annuals . I learned to accent with color when we were in Italy. Every balcony in Roma has pots of various varieties of trees, annuals and perennials. Very spectacular !
The old school building known as St. Mary’s School is covered with the lovely ivy. The window that is partially covered is my tiny computer space, when I am sitting and typing at this very moment.
Oh, I wish I could sit and visit with you my friends and share a glass of iced tea!
This Is My Hidden Garden !
