Most Saturdays (some Saturdays I have been too busy in the garden or visiting gardens) I have spent enjoying the posts from the Six on Saturday, Garden Posts…………… So, today I thought that I would jump right in with my garden at TheEndCottage………… I really like my Woodland Garden and this year it is extremely green, due to all the rain we have had! Enjoy!
As you can see we are backed up to a forest! My favorite color in this garden is white!
The plants here (ostrich fern, strawberry begonias) are all new to the garden this year (all the hydrangeas along the cottage looked awful after 10 years, for whatever reason, so I tore them out! The ostrich ferns and strawberry begonias are pass along plants from my neighbor………. I fell in love with the Spider Leaf Fatsias, so they went in the garden that will be the new Fern Reserve! We are in the process of adding a new stacked stone wall (all 7 tons of Old Orchard Stone has been ordered) and is next on the agenda in the garden. I will keep you posted on that! Also, this year I decided to tag every plant in my gardens!
These hosta get huge, but the deer and rabbits love them as much as I do, so we duke it out all summer and fall!
This year I decided to add succulents in the sunny section of the Cottage Garden, just because. The Desert Rose was very different and all those Hen and Chicks, oh my! I placed all the succulents in pots!
I placed the Black Hen and Chicks next to the Green Twister Coneflowers!
Plants make the world go round! See you next week! You can find more Six on Saturday posts here!
