Today, my friend Sally spotted this gorgeous yard that just sings spring in Norton Commons. Luckily, I had my camera since I was fence "hunting" after we finished our pilates session. So many good lessons in this landscaping--a simple white fence that complements the house; substantial fence end posts; a clean picket design; small dogwood trees in each corner that branch over the fence to blend with new carefree roses that will probably bloom all summer long--right now the new growth looks wonderful with the dogwoods.
Viewing clockwise, here are full-sized photos from the collage:
Closeup view of fence, dogwood, and rose in bloom--smashing combo!
Dogwood blooms almost hiding the fence end posts.
Good idea of the proportions tree to fence to rose bushes.
Street view of the planting --sorry for the shadows, it was high noon!
Yet another view of the winning combo!
And finally, a perfect "bouquet"--blush pink with pale yellow-green centers.
How much fun is legal when you're "gardening" with your camera? Apparently a lot! :-) Linking to Friday Fences at Life According to Jan and Jer .
