~Making Your Dream Garden~

Making a dream garden is having everything you love.
From flowers to vegetables.
Color is number # 1 for most everyone.
I love the look of a cottage garden.
Right now, I'm putting my Easter decorations away and then I'll be
concentrating on the outside garden and what I should plant now.
All the vegetables; like tomatoes, squashes, pumpkins, eggplants, and herbs are being sold in the nurseries.
I love this time of year.
Planting new plants and watching them grow!
Spring is here!!

  4. Beautiful Spring flowers! I have already been out to the greenhouses looking for plants for a fairy garden this year. Spring is still not quite here. Warm one day, cold the nest. This time last week we were shoveling snow.

    1. Wow! California is pretty much the same everyday. It would be nice to have more rain and maybe a little snow. Fairy gardens are so much. I have one section that I have mine in. But over the years, they have been making new little homes throughout the garden. Can't wait to see yours! Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Stock right? Not sure but I love this flower for its "fill in" ability in arrangements!

    1. Bernideen, You're right, it's stock. I have always loved the beautiful scent it has. My favorite is the Giant Imperial. It can grow 2 - 2 1/2 feet tall. It is a perfect addition to your cottage garden. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I am working in my garden a little each day, but keeping the puppy from undoing all my work is a challenge.

    I love the photo of the flowers on the stool.

  14. Oh I just love Stock it is so pretty and smells divine. I can't wait for all the fragrances of my garden to mingle and scent the air!!! Right now my water hawthorn is blooming, it gives off almost a vanilla scent and fills the air around the pond. Your pictures are very pretty~~~

  15. Your water hawthorn must be so beautiful near your pool. I love the scent of vanilla! When the wind blows it must smell so good! Thanks so much for stopping by.
