We are experiencing warmer than normal temperatures here and I am not sure exactly what is going on, but it does have me thinking about Spring. I know that the days of snow, ice and chilly temperatures are not gone, but every January/February I get the gardening itch and it doesn't go away for a while. At least it is not the baking itch, right? Baking does me no good...it only makes me grow BIGGER. ok, so I did actually bake a cake today too. :/
The first two photos are from BHG.
This one had me at HELLO. The patriot hostas and the boxwood are a marriage made in heaven.
This grouping uses the perfect rule to place large leafed plants next to small leaf plants for contrast. Did you notice there is not one flower in this picture, yet it is soooo appealing to the eye?
I really love the foxglove in this picture as well as the other colorful flowers. Did you know they are poisonous? Don't let your toddler chew on one. They are SO pretty next to the little white fence.
Very Cottagey (is that a word?)
And I really like the daylilies paired with the shrub roses in this picture for almost year-long color. Sorry, I cannot find the source...it was just in my photo file.
Where do you get your gardening inspiration? Did you do your own yard or did someone come up with the design for you? I would love to know what websites you go to for inspiraation! Now, girls...I KNOW there are a few of you reading this who are not going to let me know all of your GARDENING TALENTS...you are going to lurk and see what I come up with...this is a call for help. Make sure you PLEASE check back on me and don't be afraid to give me your advice. I need it. Seriously.
