Cottage Garden update
Here are some pictures of my flowerbeds next to the house. I added a few new plants, and you can see how much the older plants have grown. You'll also get a better lay of the land, and see how much of a slope my garden is growing on. I added a few pics of what the garden looks like in between it's early Spring and mid-Summer peak times. This is my garden's transitional period. What I like to call, mediocore stage. It's inportant for new gardeners to know that their garden isn't always going to look great, and that's to be expected. I think new gardener's sometimes put too much pressure on themselves and feel as if they failing at gardening if it doesn't look great 365 days a year, because that's just not the case. Please don't let your new found love of gardening be ruined by stress before it has a chance to blossom...:-)
