My Cottage Garden

Springtime is finally showing off its colorful blooms now. I am not an avid gardner but I enjoy playing in the dirt. I can’t say I have a green thumb either sonce I have killed many plants over the years.
I am so happy to be able to spend more time at home this year and finally have time to work in my gardens. I would LOVE to have a cottage garden like you see in magazines but I will be happy if I don’t kill anything this year! I will be posting my progress as we move from Spring to Summer to fall.
I’ve had a good start so far this year. I have planted 6 rose bushes over the past year and they are all looking wonderful. The mums I planted in pots last fall are sprouting up, my butterfly bush is flourishing and…
 take a look at my Dianthus!  (Otherwise known as Carnations) I planted these last year in a few different places and they have all grown like wildfire and are blooming like crazy. I have found them to be very easy to grow and even thrive when you ignore them.

My Grandmother gave me this as a small bulb a few years ago and it has outgrown its space in my front garden. I believe it is a Gladiolus but need to check on that. I love it!

And the Azaleas are also blooming right now and I love driving around town and seeing them everywhere. We always had these in our yard when I was growing up.

  1. Your flowers are very pretty. By the way, the yellow ones are irises, not gladiolus. Glads are taller and bloom in mid-summer…
