My Country Garden

Time to recreate!


Country Garden

I enjoy gardening and so love country gardens and cottage gardens.

I love gardens overflowing with beautiful flowers. Simple, rustic, and filled with beautiful blooms is  my thing.

Making my yard beautiful from the winter has become a slow process and I’m behind. Way behind!!!:/

My wine barrels are boring!

My gardens are just getting started. Some of my favorite blooms are bright and bold.

Purple iris and columbine:)

Beautiful blooms all mingling together.

And a lot of them!



Columbine anyone?:)


Columbine flowers come in many different colors including bi-colored blooms. I love the lacy, green leaves. These perennials seem to propagate themselves. Sometimes in unwanted places. Nonetheless, they bloom pretty flowers. Hard to beat that.


Even by the bird bath.

Peonies please!:)

Sigh, and my single bloom peony. 


This cute pinkish-red peony offers lush single blooms with a cheery yellow center.:)

Anything flowers… And more flowers.


Things that speak to me. I’m talking that old rusty, crusty look of weathered and worn… The graining of wood or rusty metal.

For adding extra charm.

Simple wooden barrels… wine barrel planters.

Just a peek.;)

Wine barrels



Such a pretty plant that provides loads of tall thin spikes of  bold color.
