Natural Gardener tour

Last Saturday some friends and I went on a tour of the Natural Gardener led by Roger Igo and Rosina Newton.  We covered the butterfly garden, the vegetable garden, the herb garden, and the vineyard.  I took some notes on things that I would like to incorporate into my garden, particularly from their butterfly garden.  Both of them were knowledgeable and passionate about their work.  It was lovely spending the morning wandering around with them.  It was pretty warm, so I was dissuaded from taking home any souvenirs.  At this point I have given up on gardening until the fall vegetable garden gets going.  It is too damn hot!

I believe this was called corkscrew willow, it was really gorgeous. It’s tucked away in my mind for future pond plantings.
