  1. You remind me of myself - I wanted to dig out all of the grass and just fill it with bedding plants. My husband insisted (rightfully) that the kids needed a soccer field.

    You've done a lot of hard work! It looks stunning. Makes me want to grab a pitcher of lemonade and sit on the porch :)

  2. You have sure been busy! I am sure you are impatient to see it all fill in. Patience is a virtue we gardeners have to come to embrace. The fall planter looks terrific!

  3. Hey...thanks guys! Patience is hard. That is one of the many challenges for me. Unlike interiors which can be resolved quickly, the design of a garden takes so many more elements!

  4. Looks like you have put in a lot of hard work & done agreat job. Looks fabulous!

  5. Looks like you had a very productive weekend! How nice to have a garden friend who gifts you with viburnum. Your container planting looks great!


Your comments brighten my day! Thanks for stopping by!
