But , I'm sharing it anyway.
That's right , if you read my blog , you get the ugly with the
beautiful not so ugly...
But really, it's April in northern Iowa.
Normally we don't see even this much plant life.
I did plant a Bleeding Heart with Addie last Wednesday.
( this picture was taken prior to that )
Did you notice the tree stump in the black container in the back of the garden ?
Now you really think I'm weird right?
Em sure does.
Well, it's the start of an awesome feature for the Moon Garden this year.
( I hope anyway )
This is what it will end up like.
( again , I hope )
That's right !
ANOTHER wine bottle tree !
Because , really, can any person living in the Trailerhood have too many wine bottle trees ?
I think not.
Plus, I have plenty of wine bottles...
(All those corks came from somewhere you know .)
Last year , I filled in with a lot of annuals.
I plan to add a bunch this year too ,
when you live close to as many greenhouses as I do , you can't help yourself.
I shop for plants like other women shop for shoes,
not that I don't love shoes, I do....
But I want to add more perennials than annuals this year.
I love perennials for the " bones" of the garden,
I really feel you need some annuals for constant color.
Just my opinion of course,
but, it's my blog ,
so I get to say what I want ....
Here is a little Moon Garden inspiration I got from Pinterest .
The White Garden at Sissinghurst , Kent, England
Wish I had this shed !
Wouldn't this group of containers be FABULOUS in the Moon Garden ?
Old galvanized metal filled with white flowers...
But here is my ultimate goal ~
Notice the Datura dangling above the rock ?
Wish me luck !
