My name is Ginny McNally, I’m from Hatboro, Pennsylvania.
I’d been gardening on a small scale for about 40 years. At first I had a vegetable garden, grew all sorts of things. Then our trees started to take a lot of the sunshine away, so the vegetable garden was filled in. My husband and I built the English-type garden you see, and I have tried many different flowers and plants. I have numerous gardens throughout my yard.
The flowers of this pretty incredible double-flowered clematis (possibly the variety Clematis ‘Taiga’, Zones 6 – 9) steal the show here, while foliage and a brick path form the backdrop to these incredible blooms.
This clematis flower is beginning to unfold layer after layer of purple-and-green petals.
One of the most important spots in any garden is a place to sit, relax, and enjoy the beauty.
The increasing shade of a maturing garden doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Here a mixture of foliage in different colors, shapes, sizes, and textures creates a beautiful effect.
This is of the more unusual pieces of garden art I’ve seen! I love that even the car has been turned into a space for a few more plants.
The garden shed is beautiful, and surrounded by lush greenery.
Perfectly geometric English-style garden beds act as a frame to show off the plants within them.
