I do love them. Ha on pulling them up. I think we have all done something like that. Gardening has a learning curve doesn't it?

I might have missed the bee's knees if not for you! Thanks back!

Kathy: You are so right but if the scilla did hurt the lawn, I would take the scilla first. I have an interesting pattern of scilla....they stretch from the bed to the woods just where I raked out that bed and dragged the seeds along. A path.

and sing, and sing and sing!
It was gorgeous that day and I am sure this garden will live on. Glad you could make the trip via the blogosphere.
Oh, you are so right. The hour or so we spent there was just not long enough but I was lucky to see it.
Kathy, lol. I am an armchair traveler on occasion as well. Glad to help and glad you joined the tour.
It is a garden for a lifetime for sure. Thanks for coming along and commenting.
Perhaps you will see it for yourself someday, Leslie.
Thank you for joining the walking tour. You would so love this garden.
