Secret Gardens and THE 100 YEAR OLD MINT


It's NOT All Vegetables and Fruits

...I also plant other greenery.
Often, I post about my herb garden or more, about my vegetables and fruit growing gardens. Tucked away, in a hidden corner of my yard, is a little oasis. We can sit on the porch, hidden by 15 foot tall Rhododendron, lush and green, and peak out at this little respite. A flowing water fountain, and some planters, set around a tiny gravel pathway.

Yesterday, I spent some time in the morning, at a Garden Center, and picked up a few more flowers, for these 4 planters, surrounding the fountain. Each planter has a tall Fuscia, with two different Petunia, one Dark BLACK (below, right), and one, a deep Violet (below, left in the planter). In front, is a flowing hanging Bacopa, in white.


Above: Layers and layers, Tall Fucia in back, 2 types of Petunia, and Bacopa, hanging over the front.
Below: Many Varieties of Hosta, shade loving, and also, make great cover for all the rabbits.


The Hosta middle, left of the image, has a small warren underneath, that momma bunny had her little baby bunnies in!


Above: Mint Update!

The original Mint Planter, left, in Blue, was divided, half left in it, and half moved to the large Terra Cotta planter. The two smaller Terra Cotta planters are cuttings I started mid February, for Mint. Check out THIS MINT POST! for the story of HOW THIS 110 year old MINT CAME TO AMERICA!

We recently moved a bench out to the front underneath a couple of trees. I've enjoyed going out to sit and enjoy the day. Sitting out there has given me a few ideas for some landscaping and greenery updates I'd like to do. Your post is more inspiring fuel to the fire.

just don't fix the squeak on the door :)

LOL. The front door has an entirely different vibe than that back door, that's for sure.

Always, those secret quiet places. Love them!

Beautiful work

It's coming along very nicely!

I am using my last year's harvest as the bench mark. Granted, more planted this year, but, still, good mark to set
