springtime in the atrium

February 24, 2014

We’ve been getting ready for spring to start by tidying here and there.  I picked up the camera this weekend just to capture a few of these moments.

Our atrium is the nicest place to hang out in for now.  The living wall is doing great, with a few small replacements needed:  the stonecrop, of all things, died.  The agaves, ferns, and even the bromeliads are doing just fine.

The rest of the garden is a bit of a mess.  Lots of frost-bitten dead plants still hanging around.  The angel trumpets have been freshly massacred by our gardener.  And our fence is looking less and less vertical with each passing day.

I’m holding out with the backyard because I’m currently in the process of finding a landscape architect to work with.  Landscaping:  definitely not my area.  I have been collecting plenty of ideas, but no clue how to put them together.  Any recommendations for people to work with, please send them my way!
