Masterpiece clients, friends, followers, helpers, and ‘newbies’ are all welcomed to join our Masterpiece Landscaping family Open Garden at our home grounds, this Thursday, May, 26, 2016, from 4 PM to dark…..
Usually this event occurs in August, not always the most spectacular show time to display outstanding landscape beauty in our Minnesota.
In beautifying the landscaped garden world, May is the most beautiful, the most fragrant, colorful, inspiring refreshing season of the year in our zone four Twin City, Minnesota.
We picked the third week in May, the time when Azaleas, Redbuds, Juddii Viburnum, and many Rhododendrons are liable to show off in peak bloom more or less simultaneously with the most reliable flowering ground covers, vinca, ajuga, sweet woodruff, white rockcress, mauve flowering lamiums, the common sedums with their fresh foliage along with the bright green new foliage of pachysandra.
April is when our conifer world is at its most beautiful color and ‘refreshment’….
so one must include the Spring touch and beauty of all of the conifers, especially the juniper creepers, Japgarden, Blue Chip, Blue Prince, Motherlode, Prince of Wales, Wilton Carpet and Conifer “dwarfs’ such as Dwarf Colorado Spruce with their budding new growth.
However, Spring arrived very early this year, 2016….and it was cool, somewhat moist, void of torrents of this or that and by habit nearly all species of Spring beauty arrived early this season….two to three weeks early to be more specific.
Whereas May 26 is, on the average, the day my couple dozen azaleas would be opening in their finest color display, the May 26th, might be at high tail end of bloom this Thursday, unless the next few days are cool and quiet.
Conifers, nearly all, will be at their very best display, no matter what the Spring offers in weather. New year foliage begins mid April and will continue being distinguished until the first week in June, come rain, shine, or/and snow.
REMEMBER IN OUR MINNESOTA LANDSCAPE GARDENS, WINTER IS THE LONGEST SEASON OF THE YEAR……EQUAL TO ALL SEASONS COMBINED. Many beautiful conifers are at their best throughout winter when they are kings and queens of the garden roost.
YES, YOU CAN BRING FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS. Tasties will be provided. Please come! ….from all of us at Masterpiece.
