Boxwood, Impatiens, Holly, Ivy and Hostas


My Princeton garden with impatiens set among the boxwood, ivy and myrtle, together with hostas and holly bushes.

Busy Lizzies, also Known as Impatiens

Impatiens flowers like to spread, and make good ground-cover plants in shady, moist environments.

The Elegant Hydrangea Bush

Hydrangeas can be blue, white, lavender or pink, depending upon the soil conditions where they are planted, and what they are fed.

Elegant Solar Lamps in the Garden



Situated in pots, alongside paths, or in vegetable garden-plots, solar lamps are an economical way to enhance the elegance of your landscape in the evening, and a possible deterrent to pests such as mice, who love to eat little plants but generally avoid light.
