That is a really good mix of perennials and annuals.
It should be beautiful when it is in bloom

Wow you sure have been busy SL. I still have snow on the ground. Itching to play in the dirt. Bought my seed starting mix today and some more seeds. I have to play inside for another month or so. Can't plant seedlings until Memorial here. Hope to be able to plant some peas in my 1/2 oak barrrels by the end of the month, garden will be too wet to plant in it. Will be lucky for it to dry out by June with all this snow.
Can't wait to see pics when your gardens are in bloom
Good heavens Kay you have been busy. Sounds like you will have a beautiful bed. Can't wait to see pics.
I am aching to get out and play in the dirt. Mother Nature has been teasing us. One day it rains like crazy the next it couldn’t be more beautiful but to wet to garden. This week are in the low thirties again with high winds so the wind chill is BURRRR. They are even saying the S word again. In March! Here! That’s just not right. I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those years were we have about five minuets of spring then go right into 100* summer temps. Aw the joys of living in the PNW. Better then being buried under snow for months I guess. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
