The Garden in 2015

The year 2015 in the garden was wonderful because I mostly ignored it. Instead of working every spare minute as I did for the garden tour in 2014, I simply puttered when I had time. I made a few adjustments, bought a handful of plants, weeded, but really just enjoyed it. Lovely how the garden changes with each month as it wakes, thrives, then sleeps again.

  1. I love how full your garden looks! I have new ground to work through and only have small areas planted. Will take a long time, but hope our yard is filled with beautiful plants like yours!
