Garden Inspiration

Ah, summer..time to work in the garden. I have several areas I need to address:

1. Dead grass under the trees in the backyard. I am thinking: pea-gravel.

2. Bare spots in the shade and in my flower borders: Impatiens in various colors

3. UGLY hose: Hose holders?

Plus I want more color. First I thought I wanted all white flowers with touches of blue and purple. But recently, on my morning walks, I have passed by a house for which I have severe garden envy. And its sooo simple. She only has EVERY color, massed in borders and spilling over plain terra-cotta pots. OK, she also has a lovely home and perfect lawn, but still. I wanna!

Here are some inspiration photos I have collected, enjoy!

Rain gorgeous!

Pea-gravel path
Morning coffee, afternoon tea...ahhh!
Gorgeous, right?

Love this upcycled path

I love the casual grouping of rocks to catch the rainwater

Ahhhhh, I hope to make some time ot garden tomorrow.

Make it a Great Day!
