BROOKLYN GARDEN MAY 2022

[ Edited ]

 

My backyard patio areas and pathway were redone last Fall at the end of the gardening season with large bluestone slabs.  The plantings and raised beds remained.  All the Japanese maples and a rhododendron were repotted in new pots -- some in Martha Stewart's faux bois planters and some in the Garden Reflections dark grey fiber clay pots.  The garden is now coming alive!
