Come walk with me down Ridgewood Avenue.
Enter in the shade and exit in the sun by the Vegetable Garden Cathedral.
Walk slowly now. On the left is August Dreams Garden which will be in peak bloom in… August.
On the right is Woodland Follies, which will quickly become a sunny spot if that old redbud tree falls over.
Oh yes, there is still a lot of room to plant more, and that’s the plan. More plants. And soon there will be a place to sit and reflect on a garden where each section has its own name or sit and read a good book about gardening..
Ridgewood Avenue, the name of a street in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of “the most famous addresses in Southern garden history“, where the garden writer Elizabeth Lawrence lived.
Ridgewood Avenue, now the name of a path in my garden.
