"Our home in Roseburg, Oregon. We have been here for 20 years, and will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this month. Charlie built the copper pipe arch over the cobblestone entry. A neighbor built the river rock wall many years ago. I have added cobblestone paths through the garden. When we first moved I planted the "magnolia stellata" on the left, it has beautiful white blossoms in the spring, with many long delicate petals, that curve up. Big ferns and rhododendrons are in large pots on either side of the benches in front of the windows. I have many varieties of iris planted throughout the garden, and have added a terraced garden down the slope on the right side. I love to sit and read under the maple tree."
