Peg Bier’s Shade Garden, With a Special Emphasis on Chickens
Not live chickens, metal chickens. But I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re going back to another garden we visited during the Garden Bloggers Fling in the DC area.
Peg Bier is something of a local legend among gardeners. Her place is on a mostly wooded lot in Northern Viginia. On first approach, the house is obscured by trees.
Here’s a closer look.
In front of the house there is a sunny spot where brightly colored flowers bloom. I like all the blue-purple Larkspurs.
Around the back, the garden is mostly shaded.
Bright red Begonias and Fuchsias balance the tranquil green shade.
Containers are skillfully combined into groups.
There are multiple areas for sitting and taking in the garden.
I like these leaf bird baths.
This little church is part of a little fairy garden. Generally I’m not fond of fairy gardens, but I like the church.
There is another sunny area at the rear of the back garden.
There you can find a variety of sun-loving blooms, like these hybrid Purple Coneflowers.
A lot of our pictures from this garden consisted of metal chickens. I’ve mentioned elsewhere Judy’s fondness for inanimate poultry, and this seems to have affected her selection of photographic subjects at Peg’s Garden.
More metal chickens.
More still to come from the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling.
