Please share your garden plans for 2013
I always have fun with this question! What are your plans for 2013? Are you planning a new garden, reworking an existing garden...or just enjoying what you've already created?
I'm hoping to move my arbor out of the kitchen garden (which is just too cold and windy) and put it in front of the lilace hedge, where it will get more protection...from the wind and the deer! Maybe I can finally try a few smaller climbing roses and some honeysuckle to go with the clematis. (We don't have enough frost free weather for climbing annuals.) I'd also like to add a few alba roses in the corner, in front of the lilacs. This garden is outside the master bedroom and I want to go a little 'fairy tale' with all old style, fragrant flowers and herbs.

In the kitchen garden, we plan to fence in the garden and have perennials along the fence (purple raspberries, blueberries and some shrubs and perennials) with annual vegetables and flowers inside. Somewhere we need to add some seating, either a few benches, a table and chairs...or maybe both. It would be fun to make this garden a little more rustic, but I'd still like to incorporate a bit of Peter Rabbit. Ideally, it would be fun to add a garden shed, too!

So what are your plans? It's so nice to have a break and get excited for next spring :)
