Summer has flown by. There is never a dull moment in my new flower gardens. Weeding is my middle name. The results of my hard work are beginning to show themselves. Below is a photo essay of my newly created flower garden, as it matures into it's first season.
I've been delighted with how the plants are growing together. It takes such restraint not to cram more plants in the bed, but I hope that by giving them the proper space, they will become more robust and fill in even more next year.
Creating my new gardens has taken a tremendous amount of time this spring and summer. But, as I sit in my wicker chairs and enjoy the buzzing hum of the bee's in the setting sunlight, I think to myself, it has been quite worth the effort.
