Gardens of Provence
I really like french and english country is my home, and I seem to be moving towards cottage gardens in the front and shady side of the house, but would like to do more of a provence type of garden in the back, leading to my "potager".
The back yard gets a lot of sun and the summers here are very warm (90's in July and August) but the winters are cold and long. I'm thinking sunflowers, Hidcote lavender (zone 4) and maybe (eventually) an arbor with grapes over a seating area.
Does anyone else like this style of garden? Do you have any advice or pictures? Thank you!
