Open Gardens: The Hardiman Garden
I was very excited to see the garden of Lucy and Fred Hardiman. Lucy Hardiman is a garden designer at Perennial Partners. This garden certainly did not disappoint. Full of vibrant rich colors (purples, blues and pinks, a favorite combination of mine) and accented with artistic architectural structures and art pieces, as well as some favorite plants like hydrangeas and lilies. Note the big crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Zuni') in the above photo. They do grow here!
|Just look at these lilies! I was intrigued by the blue flower and she told me that it is a perennial that she herself introduced to Joy Creek Nursery. It is Galega 'Lady Wilson'.|
|It was near sunset when I toured the garden and the diminishing light gave it a magical quality.|
|Perfectly placed art pieces|
|Yarn in the garden? Why not?|
|This is the front entryway garden that leads back to the main garden.|
