Laveryne was the gracious host of yesterday evening's open garden.  It had been two years since we last visited her garden, so I finally got a chance to redeem myself for the "issues" that I had with my camera when photographing that event.  Also, it was not long after that visit that I started using the photo "stitching"  computer software that came on a CD when I bought the camera.  You'll see the results below.

First let me say that Laveryne is affiliated with the Marion County Master Gardener Association and also the Salem Hardy Plant Society.  Her Master Gardener skills show throughout the garden, and her roses are complemented by an outstanding collection of perennials, shrubs, and trees.

As you see in the two photos below, quite a few rose bushes greet visitors as they approach the front yard.  Laveryne is seen identifying the roses for a group of SRS members and friends.

Hopefully, the next two stitched photos do justice to a spectacular  back yard.
