I tried so hard to thing of another word beginning with F for the title! I like alliteration--who doesn't? Above is the Perennial Border currently bedded with tulips and pansies. These will all be ripped out when the display fades and the perennials will take over the show. I wish I could see that!
Imagine coming around a corner and seeing these below--delightful! I love gardens with surprises. (The good kind. Not: "Argh, dog poo!") I have a hard time creating any in my own because I'm afraid to enclose any areas of the yard to create "rooms".

And Finally, to close out the series, a beautiful Dumbarton Oak!
