Looking west toward the house. They cypress tree (on your left) helps define the patio area. Beds curve around the foundation of the house.
Here is a view looking back toward the secret garden. This area is so large, I add a few more perennials each year, but mostly it is filled with wildlings.
This is what you see when entering the back yard and turning right toward the house. The sunroom is on the left. The patio is also on the left, though out of this picture.
View from the patio looking out across the yard. We have no direct neighbors to the south, just a low field, so it feels private out on the patio.
Newer plantings of hosta 'francee williams'. This one gets quite large in time.
A drift of Hosta 'gold standard' along the edge of a bed. This produces incredibly sweet smelling white flower stalks in August and spreads readily. This is one of the varieties that I have been dividing and moving.
Hosta 'hyacintha' is one of the smaller blue-ish varieties.
This is one of the dwarf varieties whose name I forgot. Its margins are yellow.
Hosta 'albomarginata' is the common white tipped hosta.
A tiny treasure nestled among the foliage.
