My latest creative endeavor (though my husband had to implement most of it, I have to admit) has been putting in a perennial flower garden in our back yard, off the deck. We had 5 rose bushes out there already, so we decided to expand the area to put in a cut flower garden. Leif built steps and put in some stepping stones. We also planted another rose bush, a poppy plant, daisy plant, Lewisia, and two lupines. I was so pleased to find that one of the poppies had bloomed this morning! It's beautiful!
I also planted some vegetables - tomatoes and peppers. And last night a friend gave us a couple strawberry plants (yay!!) and some white flowering ground cover, so those will be added to the garden this evening, hopefully. I've never been much for gardening, but have wanted some vegetables, strawberries, and flowers for some time. I've had an iris bed for a few years and it seems to be doing well, so I'm trying my hand at something else.
