Summer vs. Winter

This was the garden in Laguna last week as you entered from the west stairs. There are a number of deciduous trees in this area, for fall color and because this is on a north facing hill that doesn't get much light during the winter.
This is the same area last summer when the trees were filled in and the perennials were at their height of bloom. Big difference to us, even though there is no snow!

Hi, roll on Summer. I love all the ferns. I bet it's great when the new croziers unfurl.
