I am an old fashioned, primitive gardener.
That is the only thing that it could be called... in my head I have visions of grandeur, but really no plan to get there. I envy those that can plot out & plan a garden ~ flower or vegetable. My Mom plans the most wonderful flower gardens. Rows of this and spots of that ~ each planted in the perfect location. Thankfully my Mom planned and planted the garden in the front of our home. It looks nice and I do love it. After three years, it is filling in nicely and I have been able to keep the weeds under control.
The latest issue of A Simple Life arrived in my mailbox yesterday and it is filled with glorious gardens.
My gardens though... are just a mish~mash of all... including some clover, crabgrass, and dandelions. Yes, I do try to weed that stuff out, but what is planted there is just 'thrown' in. These gardens are my old fashioned, primitive gardens... full of flowers here when we moved in, some I've purchased, started from seed, or was shared from a friend's garden. I am the kind of gardener that just digs up the dig and puts the plant it. I don't plan much at all. Yes, I do try to put the taller plants towards the back and the shade loving plants in the shade with the sun lovers in the sun, but honestly this does not always happen.
But... looking here and there you can see these right now...
These lavender, old fashioned iris are my favorite! To me, they smell like grape Kool-Aid and bring back childhood memories of summer fun.
These are just the blooms for today. There will be lots and lots more soon. I spent the day in the greenhouse yesterday and started yet more seeds. So... I'll share more with you soon.
Wishing you all warm smiles...
