Evergreen ferns keep the garden looking lush in winter.
Here the Autumn Fern (Dryopteris erythrosora) adds texture to the camellia walk, (above & below)
so does the Arborvitae or Moss Fern (Selaginella pallescens) (below)
and the Tassel Fern. (Polystichum polyblepharum)
Seating, painted matt black, does not detract from the real interest..STRUCTURE & PLANTS!
This is after all, a garden. ( I am all for a touch of whimsy… just not here.)
The individual differences in seedlings will always amaze me. Below, Toad Lilies (Tricyrtis hirta) that seeded themselves.
Finally… why I do not want curtains.
