Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie Time
be sure to pop over and see everyone's gardens
The front garden is comming along nicely.
From ridding the lawn that I mentioned here.
It's 3 years old now.
Thought I'd show before and after pictures.
to no lawn!!!
The Paths go in..
~the first year~
Time to plant...
I put in some perenials and bulbs
with annuals for color
water orb is added (rocks left of photo)
~the second year~
more planting of perenials
added a Pomergranite and Beauty Bush
last years plants are bigger
everything is filling in nicely
still adding more plants
Cherry tree was planted
my first ever Foxglove
(not that I haven't tried before)
isn't she gorgeous!
and my first ever Lily of the Valley!
(again, not that I haven't tried!)
I know she is puny,
but I think she's adorable!
a mosaic showing some of the
plants that are blooming in front
Starting clockwise from the left:
Lavender, Tulips, Chives, Cranesbill,
Sweet William, Lavender
center is a Pelargonium.
I think my neighbors thought I was crazy
when I disposed of the lawn.
I like to think they understand now,
especially since it's filling in.
it will continue to evolve as gardens do.
