a CA cottage garden instead of lawn
I admire nice neat lawns, but have no interest in having one for myself. We have a remodeled 1940's cottage with absolutely no charm or architectural distinction, so I hide it, literally, with a plethora of interesting plants.
I posted two threads of some of the plants in bloom right now, in the Gallery section of the Cottage Gardening forum. The link is to the Gallery itself, and the threads I posted are titled "March flowers NorCA garden" Pt 1 and Pt 2. Enjoy!
