Garden Project

This is a spot I have chosen as my first plot to work on
in our yard. We bought this house almost 5 years ago
and we have 5 acres. By no means are we landscaping all
of it....we have some forest and a large field...but also a
large yard. We have spent quite a bit of effort doing hard scape
and some basic plantings before we really settle down and
do the pretty things (the things I love).

I have no idea how long it may take for this wood to be
split and I am not waiting any longer.
This little plot is just outside my potting shed and
next spring I want it to look WONDERFUL.

This is the happiest of three paper bark maples we
planted in the back yard. The bark is so pretty in the
middle of winter and I love having it by the shed.

This is cape fuscia which is 3 or 4 years old. Notice it is
no where near blooming. That shows how far behind our area
is from even down town. We are about 8 miles north of town
and our temperatures are sometimes 10 degrees colder.

So tomorrow I will start on this little area and start to make it
so that in spring I will have WONDER!!

Till next time, be safe,

Oh, I love gardening and can hardly wait to see what you build on these great "bones". I just got a new magazine the other day. It is the Summer 2011 issue of Real Garden. It is filled with page after page of the most wonderful ideas. If you can find it I highly recommend it!!

It sounds to me like you have an amazing property! I would love to have a field to just let go natural, and some woods and a yard. But I want to pass on a piece of advice that I wish other gardeners had passed on to me when I started out, and I've sworn to pass on to others. Start small! I can't wait to see what you do with your space, and I wish you tons of WONDER next Spring!

and I thought I had alot of property. That wood pile looks just like one of ours. We still have some to be split and' been like that for 3 years. So like you...a girl has to do, what a girl has to do...just make it pretty around it!
Your property looks wonderful and the plants are coming along nicely.
Just can rush Mother Nature.
It took 6 years for one of my special hydrangeas to bloom. It did it this year.
Happy gardening, hugs, Evi
