Best of My Garden: the Nicki Moment

As I’ve written about before, we’re waiting to do a lot of planting until Seattle’s very dry summer ends and rains resume. But I asked friend Nicki to create a “Nicki moment”, and she came up with this lovely planting in a big clay pot that we unearthed from all the overgrowth. I’m enjoying the colors and lush growth immensely — it’s in the back, in full view of the deck.

The idea for the Nicki moment was Jerry’s tree — the beautiful weeping cherry in the front yard at San Gabriel Drive that will always be Jerry’s tree, and which makes my heart smile whenever I think of it. This artful planting brings me the same kind of joy.
