Spectacular... and wondrous and glorious!
  The rock construction, not to mention the plants, is expertly done. :o

Gosh, it would be nice if my pensteomons bloomed like that!

I agree about David Sellars yard: spectacular and encouragement to us all. Mark; Isn't P. 'Wax Works' one of your plants? This all comes 'round because I lost my 'Wax Works' two or three years ago, but last year noticed seedlings, and these have returned, that look a lot like 'Wax Works' children. I'm not completely up to speed on my Penstemon growing yet; but these are being closely watched.

Thanks for your kind comments on our garden.

Those pictures with the Penstemon fruticosus Purple Haze were taken 8 years ago! This is what the garden looks like today.  We've finally had a sunny spell of good weather. 8)

What an absolute joy to stroll through your magnificent garden, David - with a camera, a plantsman's eye and a photographic memory to record and remember every horticultural delight. Truly superb.
