The Stireman perplex
|Hellebore and Puschkinia|
|The pond at Tony's|
|I believe these are Draba polytricha|
|Probably Draba dedeana|
|Troughs full of African succulents!|
|That's Delosperma sphalmanthoides in the bottom trough!|
|Out of focus Lewisia bed--sorry!|
|Ranunculus gramineus and Aethionema grandiflorum run amok|
Also check out the great piece about John Stireman in the Deseret News. And do check out John Stireman's account of his building his front berm in this old NARGS journal (his piece is towards the end of the .pdf. And finally, to see Tony and John's gardens at the height of June bloom (which I have yet to do--maybe next year?) check out "Sierra Rain Shadow's" wonderful album on Flikr. If you haven't guessed yet, the URL's are embedded in the paler gray text above...
Perplexing my eye: if they weren't so nice they'd be annoying!
