Summer Garden Update 2014


After spending many months in cold snowy weather..I get excited by the first sign of Spring and could hardly wait for my gardening season to begin. We live in town house so we don't have huge yard to fulfill my fantasy...my gardening space include front landscaping and one raised bed veggie patch in the back.
we have 3 different kind of Roses included in front landscaping and Hydrangea and Shasta Daisy tucked around veggie patch in the back but this perennial doesn't satisfy the craving I get for feel of the soil in my hand and dream of flower bed So as soon as May had arrived this year I went crazy and bought this annuals.


Even after buying this I could not stop myself and bought few Dahlia plants. I have a weakness for garden nurseries and hardly can stop myself from going inside :) Also Zinnia flowers are staple in my gardening so bought a packet of Zinnia seeds.

I had Marigolds, Petunias, Midget roses, Zinnia, Ranaculus,  Geraniums, Dahilas, Circa vine and creeping jenny, ornamental grass to work with so I mixed and match all the plants and created few containers and hanging baskets. It all has flourished to a wonderful garden now I hope you will enjoy it as we much as we do everyday.

This is how it looked when I planted initially...


and now after almost 2 months...




This is how it looks all together on the entrance...



Creeping Jenny...


Remember my DIY bird bath...




Hanging baskets with Petunia and Circa vines..


A close up...


Zinnia that I have grown from seeds...It was an absolute joy to see them grow from seeds and now producing this beauty...


Geraniums...






Sure its a lots of work too but it gives immense joy too...Sometimes its hard to find even time for watering and going out in the heat specially when house is west facing but its all worth it and therapeutic too.. Stay tuned to see how it all looks together and some before and after of the front landscaping in next part :)
