Plenty of Plants to See

This patch of yard definitely reflects homeowner Brigitte Christensen's love of gardens "with a lot going on." Plants edging the lawn include 'Tuscan Blue' rosemary on the left, pink-and-white impatiens near the middle, and assorted nasturtiums and 'Lime' thyme—named for its lime-green leaves, not its taste. A fruiting pear tree is espaliered over the arbor, and behind it are raised beds edged with pieces of broken concrete. A white climbing 'Iceberg' rose grows behind the birdhouse; peach-colored 'Medallion' roses are in front. The darker pink rose is 'Mme Isaac Pereire.'
