Magic at the Corner

Behind the hemlock, below, a street & stop sign. View from the bench, above, another street & another stop sign.
Yes, the front corner of a corner lot. In an almost century old subdivision in Athens, GA.
Conifer-hardwood-shrub obscure views in one direction yet provide backdrop for another view.
Ah, poppets, the bench. Elegancies of a dark stain, an overdose of curves, all-year warmth of wood, perfection of scale & an invitation of repose.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pic taken last week. Stay tuned for more of this fabulous garden.

And it looks like a shady and cool spot in which to stop and rest. A very welcomed thing in August.

I love hemlocks- we have one in our front garden that was the previous owners Christmas tree in the 60's. Sadly, it had been rape-pruned and was suffering from the drought when we moved in three years ago. This is the first year that it's looked like a Hemlock since we've been here- I have been been mulching, fertilizing and "properly" pruning......and now it's a "happy" tree!
