Fairy Garden
East Side
This area being developed into a series of gardens that help lead the visitor around the east side of the house and service as a transition between the front yard and back yard.  The main features include two large spruce trees: a Green Spruce and a Colorado Blue Spruce.  On the east side a hedge of bridle writhe Spirea, makes the area secluded from the street traffic.

Originally, this area was overgrown with low branches from the blue and green spruce trees and pine cone rubble.   In 2002, the areas was cleaned up, a few branches removed from the spruce trees and the bottle garden was started under the green spruce (a number of colored wine bottles held by bamboo sticks.)

The next year, 2003 we started Boston Ivies on the east side of the family room with starts from John & Liz's garden.
