New House, New Garden

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. -Audrey Hepburn

New house, new garden:
new life
of blessed tomorrows.

This is not just a dream but a soon-to-be reality. We have a large patio that was built to my husband's specifications but not the garden. We also have a gardener who was recommended by three new neighbors. At his suggestion, we visited three nurseries. The first one was an awesome sight with pavilions of annuals, perennials, statuaries, showcase rooms, trees, and more. The second one was a small enterprise that did not have what I was looking for, and the third one was a wholesale flower center. Little did we know that we needed a gardener to accompany us at this nursery. The owner being a friendly person decided to let us take a look around and gave us a tour. He added little stories about the type of flowers that grow in Virginia as opposed to Long Island. Now with a better idea of what flowers will grow on my property, I am ready to create two gardens: a herb garden and flower garden. Let's see what I choose and how the gardener plays out my ideas.

  1. Carol, one of the joys of having a blank page for your garden is that you get to choose what you want and plan where it goes instead of reworking someone else's idea. Have fun picking and choosing and then enjoying the end result.

  2. Oh, gardens are SO exciting! A blank canvas upon which to paint an explosion of colors, scents, and tastes (as in the herb garden :-)). You're going to love dreaming, planning, and planting!
