First spring for raised rockery
In mid-May (Ontario) this new raised rockery comes to life... Created last year using urbanite (broken concrete), with a few real limestones to top it off.

Limestone pavement and scree bed
This bed was laid in the autumn/winter of 2016 and is at the front of the house open to the pavement and roadway. It attracts public attention by all who pass as it demonstrates how many alpines can be grown in such a small space. The soil is extremely sandy. Everything is thriving
