I always like this pathway in the garden: Spirea, bleeding heart, nettle and forget-me-nots.

A view of the little sunken garden behind and below the Spirea you see in the above photo.

What a pretty walk through your springtime.

Did you 'sink' the garden or is it just in a natural low spot? I love that idea. It seems like a romantic little hideaway. Min

Oh man! Now I have to rent a bulldozer. Does anyone know of a cheap source of massive rocks in Simi Valley?

What a beautiful garden spot! I am trying to create something similar in feel in the far back end of my yard. Now I will be able to refer to your picture to keep me motivated. I have been hauling rocks all winter from the beaches around here and dumping them at the end of the driveway. Now I am hauling them 2 or 3 at a time by wheelbarrow to the back end hoping and praying the barrow doesn't sink in the soft soil and tip. Very stunning garden picture, thank you for sharing!

Thanks everyone.

min - an old house trailer sat there when I first moved in my house. It was a wreck and I had it hauled out, which left a depression. Over the years, I dug it out (by hand) more and more until I got the look I wanted. It's very small and still a work in progress; but it's getting there.

freezengirl - my days of hauling rocks are nearly over, but my eyes still light up whenever I see a pile of great stones! Instead of a wheelbarrow, you might try one of those hand trucks I think they call them. They have two wheels and stand upright - people use them to move furniture,ect. You'd be amazed at how much weight they can move around. Unless the tires go flat like mine does. :)
Good luck with your project - don't give up, just keep thinking how great it's going to look. And it won't happen in a day, but it will all come together eventually.

Schoolhouse- Your gardens are so beautiful and old world, I just love them! If I lived closer, I would definitely be visiting you for tea, in your secret garden :)

Ha, thanks Lass. I don't know why I'm drawn to this type of garden, I try to create as tho things have been there for centuries. But then I like a wild and less formal garden too; so I have both.

Absolutely enchanting!

My thoughts exactly. I've always found your gardens so sweet and welcoming ... even covered in snow they're a mystical place.
