Before and after
Well, a new fence has brought quite a bit of change in my cottage garden.
New fence/arbor......start of redesign this year..all the beds along the fence are changing. The jury is still out on the 2 medium sized shrubs by the gate, but I think once the roses get to be their 3-4' in height the proportions will be OK.
Everything on the porch side is staying in place with the peonies and salvia, etc. middle beds were veggies over the past few years, but I needed to convert them to holding beds this year. I think I might just let these beds be more carefree in the long run. Veggies were tough because the woodchuck liked them better than me and had better timing! Somehow I could never beat him to the harvest. LOL!
Sharing a few more spring garden pics, even though not exactly "cottage" garden. Just pretty.
