Tomorrow is the first day of spring and that has me daydreaming about and planning for my 2013 flower garden. My garden board on Pinterest is a great way to focus my ideas, find some inspiration and pin the things I want to add this season, to make my garden what I dream of. First, more daisies are part of my plan. They are my favorite and I love to cut them and put them in vases everywhere. They are really pretty mixed with wildflowers, from the woods.
This cutting garden is my dream garden. I would love to go out in the mornings and have endless fresh flowers to cut and arrange everyday.
I planted some additional coneflowers last year and they lasted the whole season, with great color. The bright pink is such a vibrant splash of color too.
A climbing flower is on my wish list, and this pretty purple clematis would do well on a trellis, already in place. There is plenty of morning sun to help these pretty flowers grow.
For fall color, I will be looking ahead and planting some sedum. My goal is color throughout the gardening season.
One of my friends had a pretty container filled with different types of lettuce, last year and that is something I want to try. The bunnies may end up having a feast, but this type of container could be high enough to stop them.
Finally, my spring dreams include an old wooden ladder, filled with birdhouses or plants in pots. It is such a sweet way to add some interest and height to the garden.
As the snow and sleet swirl outside, it is hard to believe spring will arrive anytime soon, but I will keep planning my perfect garden and look forward to a summer filled with flowers.
Have a great day!
