Lifting the Veil

I was given the opportunity to do a garden consult for an out of town church. The day was forecast to be clear, sunny and mild...but being in such close proximity to Lake Ontario it was under a veil of fog from a convergence of warm air aloft and the cooler lake temperature. The mist revealed dozens of bejeweled cobwebs throughout the garden, all at various stages of creation. The garden is flanked by an impressive custom ironwork gothic arbour walkway supporting several types of vines, instilling once again the theme to 2012 being the renovation of gardens that have been left to grow on their own and now needing an edit, redo or reigning back and the installation of plants with "the right plant in the right place" mantra. I hope next year I get the opportunity to practice my skills on this interesting garden.
