Cut Flowers

I am able to assemble one or two large cut flower arrangements from my garden every year. Here's the past several years' worth.

"Pretty Carolyn. This would inspire me to get one of those riding mowers. As it is, we're too hilly here and the lawn gets to be less and less (more garden borders)...but there is something very appealing about this look!"

My Garden

My yard and garden are very small (7500 sq ft). I have about 10 rose bushes stuck here and there among all sorts of perennials. I like to "try" varieties to see which ones are successful and add more of those as the seasons go by. The resulting garden is quite a hodge podge!

But this time of year it's so hard to resist the temptation to prepare for spring planting! I always think, if I don't get around to starting the seeds indoors, I'll at least put them in the ground in May and hope they do ok.… Continue
