This is a picture of a courtyard planting. It was a showplace for a landscape company in Quebec. The Flora Exhibit takes place along the canal, on the waterfront in old Montreal every summer...I have pictures of other years from sites on the internet and the odd email...but these pictures are my own. We spent some leisurely hours enjoying the displays...and the theme last year was "The Natural Garden". It has become a movement to plant ones garden to reflect nature..to look as artlessly beautiful as possible. Takes some doing, but it includes adding habitat for animals, birds and amphibians...and there is a "native" flora in North America which hasn't received much attention from horticulture until recently... I have planted a few of the "prairie" flowers, and find them beautiful and relatively care free. This particular feature was of a combination kitchen garden and decorative border planting...and the passive solar aspect of stone walls and pavers. I wish I could say it was my garden...but mine is under snow at the present.
