Oval Lawn in the Upper Garden
Each side of the east entrance has a dogwood underplanted with Spiraea bumalda.
Long paths run toward the west end.
Lorpetalum trees that had bright magenta blooms two weeks ago now have purple foliage.
Gerber Daisy blooming along one of the Stroll Garden paths.
This long-lived Gerbera has been here since 1973.
Dogwood and Spiraea bumalda in the near view. Oakleaf Hydrangeas across the lawn and path.
Echinacea, Hydrangea and daylilies hold promise of blossoms.

More foliage of lilies, daylilies and hydrangea on the south side.
The north side has different plantings including roses and pentas.

Beyond the oval lawn are grass paths that form a stroll garden.
I garden in loamy sand. We have no mud.
Almost forgot the view in the other direction:
Tara Dillard's blog taught me to turn around and look.
