There comes a time in every good garden when you can stand back and recognize that all of your hard work, planning and, yes, frustration is paying off. Joy and Steve Davey's garden has been a learning process (see our earlier journal article), but now that we've balanced the aesthetic goals with reality and a little time, the results are fantastic. The garden is having its first moment in the limelight in the current issue of Sunset (page 48!), and there is more to come.
Congratulations and thanks to Joy and Steve, who have given us the gifts of patience and inspiration in building and developing their garden. It will only get better from here!
