Another reason for a transitional area is, well, would you want to weed this?
It's a good thing that stipa is fashionable right now because I have plenty of it!
At the base of the stipa are these purple-blue flowers that no one seems to know the name of.
I do have some plantings along the side fences. Right now, photinia is in bloom.

And I also have to sneak in a photo of Versigny, but you don't mind, right?
What about your garden? Has it got a wild side?
