My Secret Garden
Let's take a walk through My Secret Garden.
This is a drawing I made of most of the yard. Almost looks like a getaway plan, eh? It's kinda rough, but most of the trees, shrubs and stuff are in the right places...and it gives you a good idea of where we will be walking.
Our Garden Walk will also take you through the the seasons...
This is entering the second driveway.
Our Garden Walk, as shown on the map, starts here.
Alice and Bailey
The fence is lined on both sides with several rows of Day Lilies. I am adding three more rows this year and that means even LESS mowing!
The Hosta garden is on the left...
Here you may see some of my lawn-to-garden conversion...a work-in-progress.
Getting closer to the house.
There are paths inviting you to enter on the left, but we keep going straight.
My New Bottle Wall with 200 Bottles
Only two rules for all who visit my gardens:
Weeding the garden is my therapy...
Weed is a Flower in the Wrong Place
A weed is a flower in the wrong
Although I did my Master Gardener training in Green Lake, WI, I am proud to say I received most of my garden education from my Mother!
I was a little late in getting my Morning Glory's started...but they still look pretty! They will be nice next year!
Early in the summer, it's backed by lots
of very bright yellow buttercups.
They're SO Yellow!
Some Fall decorations!
Crooked Bottle Tree
The whisky barrel has a tower of red and white Impatiens.
And now...back up to the house...
67" Christmas Bottle Tree
When we purchased the property in 1993, the landscaping consisted of seven small shrubs along the front of the 750 square-foot Chalet-styled A-frame. We added on to the house and went to work on the gardens. One of my goals...More room for the flowers and less room for the grass.
Needless to say...my gardens are a labor-of-love! They are very informal, but they do have many cozy places to sit and enjoy the plants and the view.
