It grows quite well, actually.
Slowly but surely, bit by bit my picket fence garden is taking shape. I still have a loooong way to go, but I'm feeling happy about how far I've come. :)
This has been a dream of mine for so many years. I've always wanted to have a picket-fenced garden. So I'm very excited that I'm actually DOING this now. :)
My long-term goal is to have it look like an English garden - all wild and overgrown looking. Nowhere near that yet, but that's where we're heading. Right now I'm just ecstatic that the things I'm planting are still alive!!! :)
Thought I'd share a few pics with you. Then we will have them in a few years to compare to the way it looks then. Can't wait!
I bought this purple plant at Lowes. When I got home I realized I had picked one up without the label, so now I have no idea what I planted! I'm planning to go back by Lowes and look at the tag! Whatever it is, I love it.
Some of my herbs.... and a happy surprise. The tall white petunia.... that just sprouted up. Apparently the root was left in the planter from last year and it just popped up. I LOVE how tall it is! I'm happy it decided to sprout.
One of my crape myrtles. Love these bushes devotedly! I'm a major, major fan of crape myrtles. I've planted three so far, but plan to have them scattered all over my property. They are awesome. Very hardy bushes, drought tolerant, and gorgeous with all of those blooms! I planted this last summer, and am thrilled that it survived and has bloomed once again this year. (can you tell I don't have much faith in my gardening skills?) ;)
Knockout roses. Another bush that is supposed to be nearly indestructible. My kind of bush!
Evidence of my hard work ;)
I can't wait to see what it looks like this time next year! :)
