The beginning

This is what I started with, upon moving into our fabulous new (and first!) home: we had begun negotiations on the property in February and moved in at the end of March. A lot had changed while the home stood empty, and the large vegetable plot was UNBELIEVABLY overrun with weeds. Its been a steady battle since then, both against the weeds, and my ever-changing vision for the space: "Its going to be a beautiful potager! No wait, a lush tropical setting. No, better yet, a formal garden with a firepit! No, not formal; cottage style. I love cottage style!" Still struggling with an overarching design, I am just going with what strikes me, and the plants I have available to me. We'll see where it takes me...


  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of gardening! You will laugh, cry and wonder why you planted some things, but everything will turn out beautifully in the end. One bit of wisdom - a garden is NEVER finished! "-)

  2. Giddy, thank you for checking out my little site! I am definitely addicted to gardening, I love a project that never ends ;)
