Knot Garden

The matured knot, in process of having its original Liriope edging replaced with perennial violas.


An earlier shot of the knot when the sphere finials were pups.

The  fish-scale patterned pyracantha on the wall is a red-berried hybrid that I prefer over the species orange.

Grown in an oblique-half-circular bed, the boxwood design is composed of the intertwined letters of  `Lī and `Mī. Once it was an `open knotī, with a gap at the end of the letters. On the eve of a twenty-fifth anniversary, Larry and I installed two shrubs to close the knot.
