Today John Erskine is sharing his garden with us, which we have visited before (Change Up Your Garden).

This past year I’ve been lucky enough to be able to work from home. So during the week, I’ve made many trips to my garden to see how it looks at different times during the day and to find interesting new views that show off different plant combinations. I continue to tweak my garden, moving things around, trying new plants, and removing plants that are unhappy or that I am no longer interested in. I still haven’t figured out how to combine floral abundance with low maintenance, but I’m working on it.

This is one of the Pacific Coast irises, a group of species (and hybrids between them) native to the Pacific Coast of North America and perfectly adapted to the climates there.
