Day 280: we are spending Thanksgiving weekend in Ottawa with my whole family. We toured The Mosaic Gardens. It was incredible!
Vivien thought that this lady looked like me. I'm glad she sees my mothering as so peaceful and serene - that's not always how it feels!
Didn't know how to get here by public transportation so walked for 2 hrs in the humid weather (there and back) ...got 24,000 steps on the Fitbit and saw the most beautiful garden! #mosaicgardens#canada150#gatineau#withaeroplan @aeroplan
Great plant for the Pacific Northwest: Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’
@mosaicgardens shares their favorite plants now on gardendesign.com (plus catch their amazing work in the new Summer 2017 issue!) This salvia produces indigo flowers with nearly black calyces on upright stems all season. “It’s almost scary to walk through a mass of it,” Rebecca Sams of Mosaic Gardens says, “because amped-up hummingbirds want those flowers.” Western Oregon’s cool, damp climate sometimes makes overwintering a challenge, but plants can resprout from tubers or be grown as annuals.

Solstice garden party! 🦌🦌 🎉 About half of our gardens are frequented by deer. Fortunately, we have a broad palette of resistant plants, so these guys came to drink from the basalt bowl and moved on. Thanks to our fab clients for another gorgeous shot! #deergarden#mosaicgardens#oregongarden#solstice
Found this gem back in the feed of the incomparable @clairetakacs - the Coos Bay garden in magical light.
