Elegant Garden in Boulder, Colorado

Boulder lives up to its name, with elegant rockeries and large boulders featured in nearly every garden.

Elegant, Hardy Boxwood Shrubbery

Boxwood shrubs are evergreens that thrive in cold winters, as well as in drought conditions. Once established, they need to be trimmed with shears every few months in order to stay full and dense. This is my old courtyard, lined with globe-shaped boxwood. ©M-J de Mesterton

Elegant Peonies

It is time  to buy and plant a large number of peonies in a place where they can be admired by all. I never bring them inside from my garden (pictured here), because they are usually crawling with ants, who love them as much as we do. Here is a source for peony plants on the web: Hollingsworth Peony Nursery
