My front garden has surprised me this spring with an abundance of annuals that didn’t die over the winter! My attempt at an English cottage garden has really encouraged me to continue planting. I didn’t think I’d inherited my mother’s green thumb, but my roses are so healthy and hearty (even after a late freeze) that I am tickled pink! I’ve now planted Catmint, Dianthus, “wave” Petunias, “carpet” roses, and a little purple flower whose name I’ve forgotten.
My wonderful husband is over in England this week with a group of close friends, touring up through Yorkshire and into Scotland, so he has the camera. When he gets back, I’ll take pictures of the front garden to share — and maybe I’ll share some of his pictures from this latest trip. What a delight!
P.S. – You can see photos taken by one of dh’s friends of their current jaunt through England and Scotland at this link!
