The Spring garden was wonderful this year! That's because last Fall, I actually ordered bulbs and planted them. We moved into this house just over 8 years ago now and I've been working on creating a garden ever since. Usually by mid- summer, I was too worn out to so working on any fall plantings just didn't happen. The previous owners had left us with a small vegetable garden that was over-grown with weeds. The rest of the backyard was all grass.
Within the first couple of years, we had dug a bed or two and had a pavered patio installed. Each and every year, I would extend the garden space and it just keeps growing. My hubby jokes that soon we won't have any grass at all! Well . . . at least he has all the grass in the front of the house still. Although . . . since the wall for the flower bed is falling down, I was hoping to tackle that project soon as well. So I just might be taking more of his precious grass away again! But, I think that's one project that can wait 'til next year!
I did plant some peonies too, but I didn't stake them well enough and the stems just cracked under the weight of the blooms. So I cut them all the way down and put them in a bowl . . .
I thought they looked so beautiful and the smell was just heavenly! Hopefully, I will have enough energy to plant some more bulbs and peonies again this Fall. They are so worth the time and effort in creating a Happy Spring.
I hope you've enjoyed this little stroll in my garden. Until next time . . .
