Trail Mix: Favorite garden

Pat Hardwig and her dog, Tiger Lily

Today was a very fun Trail Mix day for me. (Well, Bethany, too!)

We often walk past a garden in a front yard at America Avenue and 15th Street Northwest that is my absolute favorite in town. Its intertwining elements are rich with color and the unstructured English garden look that I adore.

But today we got a bonus, as the gardener was in the yard.

We spent a good 20 minutes today with Pat Hardwig and her dog, aptly named Tiger Lily (Tiger for her rambunctiousness and Lily to soften it a bit), and discovered that her gardens fill nooks and crannies everywhere in her yard, which is beautifully shaded along the left side of the house.
