Hello....Welcome to my garden. The
picture above is a current
layout of my property. I have added
the shade garden, Iris bed,
and the 40 x 6 ft perennial bed since
moving here 4 years ago.
Eventually I hope to be adding a deck,
a shed and a pergola with
wisteria. It is a small area but it
keeps me busy. I will be adding more pictures to this page as it progresses.
In the meantime, take your shoes off and feel the grass beneath your feet
while you take a stroll through my gardens...
In the beginning...this side of the
house had full sun so I knew anything I planted should grow. I went through
some old garden catalogs to see what was needed. I came across a Spring Hill
catalog and placed an order for the Complete Never Ending Perennial Border
Original scan from Spring
Of course, I didn't expect it to look
exactly like this but it's
coming close. I kept the existing hydrangea bush there in fear of killing it if I moved it.
This is it going on its fourth year.
Some of the plants have not come back so I replace them with something else.
I have expanded it to the front as shown in the layout
This is a view in the spring time. You can now see the dogwood in full bloom. In time I will add an iron arbor with honeysuckle, a bench along the fence and a birdbath. It will give it some separation from the front and the back.

Hostas and Forget Me Nots
It's not growing as fast as the perennial bed but each year it gets fuller. It consist of daylillies, lilies, hostas and ferns. I wanted it to look natural so I rarely weed this area.
Say hello to my little friend
I hope you enjoyed the tour. As you
can see, all is welcomed. Please come back I will be updating this page with
