YES! Why we slave away...

Here are some pics of my gardens so far! Be sure to check out the 2006 link too. We started an "english" garden last year and really added to it this year after our retaining wall gave us a lot more garden to plant in. We also put up the window boxes this year. I bought them at AC Moore and stained them myself.

I want to plant a bulb garden in our front yard this year, but want to do it in such a way that the next bloomer hides the plants that are gone by. Any ideas?

Great photos. I love your picket fence!! And the side garden with the stepping stones looks wonderful. What's growing in your potager?

Everything looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing with us.

Nice job! Love the picket fence.

For the bulbs, plant spring bulbs in the middle, then put later bloomers in front of them. I made the mistake of lining paths with daffodils, but most of the time all I see are brown strappy leaves.
