Wednesday Ramble

by Rainbow Bobbins

Wednesday’s ramble route started in the Hawthorne District, went up and over Mt. Tabor and ended up at Beer Bunker in Montavilla for pints. About 1.5 hours and 3.3 (leisurely!) miles in total.  I liked these two front yard combos – still collecting ideas for the parking strips:

The roses above remind me of the “Joseph’s Coat”  rose I am thinking about planting in the garden nook.  There are tons of flowers in bloom – the walk smelled good and was so colorful:

It is on a tulip tree (Yellow Poplar) Liriodendron tulipfera….

A giant tulip tree with a tree swing in front of a pink house! I love this part of town.

I would be nervous if this was my neighbor below – notice the running bamboo coming up through the lawn… yikes

I do have a slight fascination with pollarded trees and pollarded catalpa in particular – which I think this is below. Hmmm…maybe in some future yard.
