|In honor of Earth Day , I wanted to share the old fashion flower garden that H and I just completed. Our hands have been covered in "earth" for the last two days getting this flower garden dug up...lol|
|We completed the new greenhouse just about this same time last year, so all we had time to do was dig a small area up. We had plans to expand it this spring, so we got busy planning our new garden.|
|We used a hose to mark the area that was to be dug up. I like a curvy border better than a square one. |
We had a few plants that came back from last year, so we left them where they were.
|It is a pretty large area, so I needed plenty of new plants to fill it in.|
The photo on the right shows our "wuggy".....a marriage of a baby buggy and wagon that H made.
|I played with the plants until I pretty much had them the way they would be planted.|
|After all the plants were in, we added some bark mulch to help hold the water in and also to make the flower bed look more finished.|
|For a little whimsy, I have our initials on each side of the greenhouse porch.|
