My favourite garden was #2 belonging to Al and Judy Hirsh in Gordon Woods. . It is obviously a labour of love they have spent may hours enjoying and creating. It's a shade garden and makes extensive use of hostas. But Judy has an eye for colour and paints with the plants they way an artist uses colour to create a picture. Next to the blue leaves of a Big Daddy hosta the chartreuse sedge, Japanese Forest grass waves and flows providing an eye catching hit of colour that draws your eye to the corner where it is nestled.
|Hakonechloa macra - All gold Japanese Forest grass, provides an eyecatching focus.|
Judy artfully places large planters of annuals to relieve the green and to thrill you with a new colour in unexpected places. Containers were grouped on the deck and in groups throughout the garden.

|Interesting arrangement on the deck make you stop and appreciate the beauty.|
|Her skill in filling containers is apparent and brightens green corners.|
