The Satterthwaite Warren Garden

Garden #4 on the South Hill Tour was next door to the Campbell garden, sharing space on the ridge with valley and mountain views. 



 When you sit on that well-placed bench, this is what you see.

Gardener Scott informed us that this is the result when you have too much "thyme" on your hands. 







 The gardeners here chose not to be mountain goats, and limited their scope to this lovely little rose lined grassy meadow on the ridge top. Below, the hillside drops steeply off and is covered in low maintenance heather. 

 Invited up on to the deck, we got so involved in conversation with Scott and Patricia that I stopped taking photos, except for their view of The Mountain. 

And that ends the garden touring from last Sunday.  But there is a trip in the offing to the Willamette Valley, my Oregon homeland, and garden touring continues.

  8. Such an amazing mountain view, I don't think I would ever get anything done living there I would be looking at the view constantly. It has been a great tour.
