Part of what drew us to this cottage style home was her back garden: boxwoods, blackberries, wisteria, and azaleas. The garden is well established and what it lacks in seasonal color and perennial flowers, it makes up for with a well thought out design and several mature flowering trees. We added the fencing and iron gate.
We changed it a little to add more lawn area and we’ve slowly been filling in the beds with cutting flowers and herbs. I would love to add an archway covered in a flowering climbing vine, but I’m not sure where. This shot is of the back of our garage and the side entrance to the back garden.
I love daisies, they look like happy little sunshines!
We cut back the mint this year and I was worried the bees weren’t going to come a-buzzin’. But they still came. The mountain mint is alive with bees and wasps all summer long, mostly bumble bees.
This is the side entrance to our back garden. I’m thinking of adding a climbing rose to the taupe lattice.
Happy Independence Day! Looks like we might get clipped by the tropical storm Arthur. Yikes!
