I hope you all know how much I enjoy seeing your gardens and learning from all your experiences each week – this is my most favorite thing about this blog! Even when I’m not able to get to all of the links, I’m always inspired by the ones I do visit. I sure hope you are too!
Here are a few of the highlights for me from last week:
I love Agastache and I was drooling over the different varieties that Beth at Garden Grumbles posted. The key to her ability to have many varieties apparently lies in this comment, “…I’ve successfully overwintered them…”
Hmm, though I’ve tried many times, this statement is not something I can say, unfortunately! I’ll just have to admire hers from afar.
Oh, how I want a fountain! Especially one like this beauty from Adrienne at La Vie Quotidienne. And now that I think I’ve got a great spot in the new herb garden, I’m seriously looking for possibilities.
Which of course need to be frugal and DIY. Any more ideas out there?
I enjoyed Barb at A Life In Balance‘s discussion of planning for next year’s garden by keeping track of the things that did well this year and what you want to change or add for the next year. I know how much easier it is to think of these things when you’re in the thick of it all than months later.
And if you didn’t have a chance to last week, you’ve got to check out Tracie at Fishtail Cottage‘s adorable chicken coop and surrounding fence!
I didn’t think I’d ever use the words “adorable” and “coop” in the same sentence, but this changed my mind.
Hopefully one day I’ll be able to write “coop” and “An Oregon Cottage” in the same sentence as well- though I doubt “adorable” will be included. *smile*
