Everyday I could report something new happening in my garden. It’s unbelievable how many things are changing and growing at super speed. It’s all fruit, flowers and happiness to this garden obsessed girl.
Here’s a little peek at what’s going on this week:
And my new favorite project:
Near the rose garden are these strips of soil right up against a wall. The sun beats down all day, making it a dreamy spot to plant flowers. Arranging it in more of an English Garden style, I’ve filled it with all my favorite cutting blooms.
Layering colors of chocolate (Hot Cocoa roses, scabiosa, cosmos) with dusty pinks (Cafe au Lait dahlias, Liv Tyler David Austin roses, delphinium and hellebores)— I’m already drooling thinking of all the pretty bouquets in my future.
To add some softness, I decided to plant variegated geraniums. Plant is rather a loose term, I just trimmed the stems and stuck them in the ground. I’ve had it work before, so we shall see what happens this time around.
