There are many reasons that I have a garden. I love to plan out how I want my garden to look, what flowers I want to grow, where to place them in the garden.
I love to sit among the beauty of flowers and plants. I love to think about how they are growing exactly as they were created to do. There are lessons about life to be learned in the garden.
However, I mainly garden so I can do this -
There is nothing I like more than to go into my cottage garden and cut flowers for bouquet or vase. Sometimes, it's all peonies, or roses, but sometimes it is a mix of petite iris, peonies, roses (Munstead Woods), bleeding heart, feverfew.
My cottage garden is the gift that keeps on giving, and soon it will be giving hydrangea, too! I have four kinds of hydrangea now; Limelight, a pink mophead, Annabelle, and Endless Summer hydrangea. That last one is new this year, and I can't wait to see the blooms!
Do you garden? What are your favorite things to grow in the garden?
