How Does Your Garden Grow?


Since Spring has sprung, I find myself thinking about what type of garden I want. We are just short of one year in our home and I am still seeing what we have inherited. I love flowers but the hubby likes veggies, can we do both? How about flowers centered around a vegetable garden?

I think about what flowers are best in our region and what I would like to cut and bring inside.

Garden 4

This is beautiful but way too much work for me.

Garden 5

I like a bit more natural setting with different heights and variety.

Oh, I do love an arbor or trellis, which do you like? More color or more green? Garden-herbs

I like having herbs in pots, and lovely flowers in pots on the front porch!Garden 7Garden 11 Garden 10

And of course, PINK, my favorite!
