Sorry I'm so late. Just noticed your reply. Thank you very much. This spot is a small piece of a larger puzzle. In the foreground is cast iron plant (Aspidistra) surrounding a cypress tree. The cascading hanging purple plant is a type of wandering jew (Tradescantia zebrina). Lower right foreground is Dragon Wing Begonia, which is actually in a pot. Behing begonia is Holly Fern. Beyond swing are 3 sasanqua camellia, aztec grass in front and a fig vine covered wood fence behind. Left of swing are banana trees. Shade tolerant annuals impatiens, torenia, etc in pots. I also use LOTS of caladiums (not seen). I'm glad to share!

I live in middle Eastern TN and I am thinking of replicating this gdn with plants for our region. I just want a facsimile of this garden to think good thoughts in, read my spiritual material, meditate on many blessings and the goodness God has shown me and my husband. That is the feeling it gives me. Thank you sooooo much for sharing.

Thank you, DebMR. I use my garden as a retreat for meditation and prayer, too. The pathways through garden provide a time for quiet reflection. I'll be happy to send you several photos. This labor of love started over 35 years ago and is still evolving. Many blessings to you and your husband.
