RE: weather

Thanks. Most of it is not exactly looking its best right now, but the
teahouse garden isn't too bad. I made the psuedo-Japanese garden to go with
the teahouse my husband built, and tried to plant it with evergreen stuff
that would still look decent in the winter and wouldn't need high
maintenance ever. It's starting its third year now and I'm definitely
finding things I would do differently. I planted several cistus around the
lantern but they have grown much too big. I put small shrubs in what I
thought were pleasing scattered patterns, only to find as they've grown that
they make straight lines (ick). I should have insisted on a water feature,
although at the time we were both so tired of the project that we couldn't
face it. And...oh well, we are all our own worst critics, and I do like
sitting in the teahouse looking at the garden.

Pretty magical for this time of year, not that much to
look at out my windows right now....

Wonderful garden there!
