Do you ever do this?
Hi =) I've been following your board for a while. Would it be OK if I joined you? I absolutely love the pics and have gotten quite inspired from them.
I always thought of myself as a "classic" gardener, and then I asked my husband if he liked my beds. He said they'd be nice if there weren't so many flowers squished in and overflowing. I think that means I'm leaning cottage style. Woo hoo!
Back to my question: Do you ever start a bunch of new beds while ignoring some of your established beds? While I'm not ignoring all of them, there are 2 that were once beautiful and somehow got away from me. I should be out there fixing them back to their original glory, but instead I'm starting new beds out back. I read a quote here recently that went something like, "Starting a new garden is more exciting than having a garden." That made a lot of sense to me. =)
And another thing ... when you plan a new bed (or redo an established one), do you find yourself turning things over in your mind constantly? I swear for the past few nights, I keep waking up in the middle of the night thinking, "Get a paniculata tomorrow! Move those dianthus to a new bed! Impatiens! Get more ASAP!" It's like a possession. lol
