One of the things I love about Horticulture is that every season is unique and constantly changing. I am consistently in awe every Spring as I watch for tree buds to wake up and the first signs of life coming from the ground. As the Summer continues I am able to view the various focal plants taking turns and enjoying the spotlight. Spending time in your gardens allows me a different experience every month as the seasons change.
Another aspect that changes from year to year is our particular Rocky Mountain weather. Heavy May snow falls can confuse and stress plants that have already awaken. Dry, drought conditions, and water restrictions can limit our plant pallets. It is challenging, yet rewarding to experiment and create gardens for our growing conditions. I am also committed to focusing on sustainable practices and mindful of climate changes.
We are very grateful to be voted in the Top 3 for Best Landscapers in Summit County this year! As a small company this is a huge honor! Many thanks to my great crew this year (we will miss Ricky, as he has moved to Washington for the next chapter in his Horticulture career) and to everyone who voted in the Best of Summit County!
From Spring to Fall I chose some of my favorite images from this season. Thanks to www.trouvailleimagery.com and www.kusumotophoto.com for the professional wedding photos. Can you spot your garden? Enjoy!
