Garden of the Week - Clement in Carmel

Garden of the Week visits the work of Michele Clement in Carmel California.   The fairyland foxglove courtyard is straight out of an enchanting children’s book.  Rockets of foxglove shoot towards the sky from every corner of the garden.  This pollinator and  hummingbird heaven is accented with Coleonema and Carex.   Carmel is known for its crazy asymmetrical fences. And unlike any other place I have ever visited Carmel has no street addresses. Such is their penchant for being a village and not a city. Those seeking directions receive hints such as "fifth house on the east side of Torres Street, green trim, driftwood fence" or by the legendary names adorning most houses, such as "Hansel" or "Sea Urchin."
