Amazing photos, the interplay of conifers and perennials is truly magical.

I'm a big fan of foxgloves. Your conifers are getting big.

Outstanding, Richard. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Early morning

Things look awesome Richard, the perennials and conifers mixed is splendid and we have similar tastes, Picea omorika and Abies procera are two of the very best amongst great conifers!

I love the golden vine climbing the tree in the backround. Is that a climbing Hydrangea or something else?

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much for the positive comments. I am certainly pleased with how the garden is developing this year especially.
The golden vine is a golden hop which romps throughout the summer months and into autumn before dying back again in the winter. I also have two climbing roses in the same apple tree - one red and one white - which are also doing really well this year.

Your garden has made substantial strides in the last few years. Your conifers have grown especially fast.
Watch out for that golden Hop plant. It spreads by underground runners. Mine started popping up in a 4 meter circle from the original plant that went up in a White Pine tree. It got the Roundup treatment twice already this Spring. One more dose and I think I will have conquered it. I don't like vines that spread that fast underground.

RE: Early morning

Breathtaking! I can almost hear your blues conversing across the lawn in picture 1. What a beautiful combination of conifers, maples, perennials, grasses. Something for every taste and season. What is the little blue guy on the stake in picture 5?

RE: Early morning

Super nice! Thanks for the tour. I plan to enjoy it again tomorrow morning, along with a cup of coffee!

"What is the little blue guy on the stake in picture 5?" Abies concolor 'Kalleberg's Weeping Blue'

RE: Early morning

Richard, you could be very proud to have one of this beautiful weeping Abies concolor.
It's still very rare, I'm always short in scions for propagation because the motherplant died in Norway after a transplant...

RE: Early morning

Edwin, yes, I am proud to have it. It seems to be growing well. Initially, the leader died but I have trained another section of the plant. I think it helps that the garden is on a slope for good drainage. I believe that is important especially for Abies concolor.

spectacular ...

i was going to say brilliant.. but that is so yesterday .. lol ...

morning.. is the one time.. i have no gumption to go take pix... and i never understood why ...

you need an impressionist painter in there ... i wonder if there is a camera setting or photo editor that would do that ... but i digress..

thx for the effort to show us

RE: Early morning

How lovely! I love the foxgloves, too...such a great vertical element! Your garden is lovely, and I am amused that your A. concolor 'Kalleberg's Weeping Blue' caught my eye, too!

RE: Early morning

Although this post is a few days old, I like the images too well not to comment. That's really magical light that sprucebud chose to photograph his wonderful garden in!
