You can’t see all of the house from the woodland any more.

Through early spring woodland 2017.wide.20170406_114503

One of my beliefs is that some things should be hidden, at least partially hidden, as you move through a garden.  In a way, this has been the most frustrating part of working on this garden, because I’ve put in some young trees, and been waiting for them to grow.

But I may have a shady woodland in just another few years.

Most of the trees and shrubs are just starting to leaf out, but the Redbuds are blooming, (rather sparsely but better than last year) and the Amelanchiers are gorgeous.  So the area I am most interested in right now–the woodland– is starting to look like a woodland.

I’m not ready to put shade groundcovers under the trees and shrubs; that will still be a few years off.  But isn’t it starting to look right?
