This and That...

I started my morning off with a small indulgence... looking at garden plan ideas over at BHG! I know it's way too early for my New England garden but with the clearing done late last year I have a lot of new space to take into the picture. Obviously gardens evolve but there is that initial from scratch point where you want to get the spaces staked out and plants in and covering the bare ground even if it be temporary homes for some plants - before the weeds take hold once again!
Hmm, just how long to get a spot to look like this? OK,
plus I need some red and yellow and white in this scheme...
This is slated for this coming spring... and it will be at the front of the house... yippee!
This will really be an extension of the previous photo, although
my lilac is a light purple and probably over a 100 years old... I kid you not! :D
Remove the privacy fences from this picture and one part
of our garden will be designed for something similar... another
one of those hmm how long to get to this point?
This too is slated for this coming spring
there is a spot that joins the back of our garage
to the house in a corner by my studio
window. Note to self: no yellow lilies - they have the most
horrible smell, to me anyway.
Living in a converted barn on an old farm of course my thoughts go to a cottage garden with raised beds for lots of vegetables. So the plans begin.... I'll keep you updated as spring finally arrives, which for my southern New Hampshire home is late May, I know, I know... torture to have to wait that long but well... that's the way it is.
And now for my Grow Your Blog giveaway for one of my crocheted coffee mug sweaters...
OK, I am an idiot but I cannot get the number generator to show the results in this post so...
Hand to G-d the winner is #81 - Nina over at Happy Herbs Soap
