Please show me some shady cottage gardens
I need some photos to inspire me!
I inhereted a somewhat formal garden when I bought my house and I have been slowly moving toward more of the cottage garden look.
It felt so effortless in my sunny beds but my shady beds are starting to look like a bad haircut. Some parts are still pretty sparse for my taste and the rest looks more crowded than abundant.
Most of the photos of shade gardens I have found by searching are close-ups, highlighting interesting foliage and plant combinations. I would like to see more of the bed or garden if possible since I am really struggling with making it all work together.
