While we’re making progress inside, I’m excited to make some progress in the garden too! When my mom, sister & Grams were here this past week, they staked out a first take on the garden with a rope and my containers to give us an idea of what it could look like. The area where we live used to be a pecan farm, so we have a few large pecan trees in the backyard. This area to the left of the deck is pretty shady, so this will be the shade bed for hydrangeas, hostas, and hellebores. In the backyard off to the right behind the studio is where our vegetable garden will be, eventually. I love my potting bench and I can’t wait to give it a real job back here. I love the look of two long rectangular beds, don’t you? Right now this area behind the studio is a mess! All the containers are my transplanted plants that we brought here with us when we moved. We have some really fun plans to make a cute little area and secondary access into the garage (the part on the left). Hooray for planning & progress!
