Hello everyone! Today we are so excited to be planting our front flowerbed in my favorite gardening style ~ English cottage garden!
We invite you to “virtually” join us through our time-lapse video as we plant ~ enjoy!
Watch our very first English cottage gardening VIDEO!
We started by collecting some proven favorites and some new flowers.
From the courtyard the flower bed stretches along the side of the house beside the driveway.
To begin with we have a healthy row of oxalis along the edge of the bed that returns as as volunteer every year. Under the window is a row of my great-grandmothers pink roses. Lastly, there is a lone Bella Roma rose in the corner of the bed. Now for a cottage garden makeover. Matt & I worked together & couldn’t have ordered a more perfect morning!
All planted! The bright, cheerful colors are such a welcoming sight every time we come home. Over time the plants will grow and fill in creating more of the abundant, full cottage garden feeling.
Early the next morning I snapped some “after” pictures of the flowerbeds covered in fresh morning dew. So lovely!
Sweet Oxalis, just like my grandparents had.
Fresh red-eyed white Vinca ~ how they love the heat of summer!
