My Garden

A view of my little garden. I let the foxglove "walk around". A different pleasure each year. This section was drip irrigated for three years, then 20 years without irrigation. Not a benefit to a publisher of my book Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape All Climates.

Chaos as Beauty

I came out one morning to see dozens of spider orbs gracing the former summers lavender stalks. An angelic beauty I had only seen this once because I now prune back all my lavenders. This photo never got into my book The Lavender Garden (Still for sale on web site for only $10.) It came about as I had let one section of my tight plantings, deeply-mulched garden go without any work for several years before I started to tend for it in a “natural” way. You’d never see this gorgeous photo in Martha Stewart Living!


Let me know what you think. Visit my web site to learn about my new book on drip irrigation and other gardening books. Thanks, Robert
