I suppose with spring finally in the air, and so many friends and family moving into their own houses, I'm wishing I had a place of my own to create and cultivate my own little private English garden.
I currently rent a little one level condo that does have a back and front "yard" space; and I have planted a few things over the years. When we came it had six rose buses, daffodils and iris. I've since planted a variety of lilies in the front and a variety of annuals (pansies, marigolds, etc) in the back.
I get so attached though, and where this isn't somewhere I hope to be living much longer I don't want to put too much work into the space. But when I come home to a few bright yellow daffodils, ruby red tulips and lilies as tall as I am, I can't help but want to expand the space even more.
Here's some inspiration I've found recently for once I do have a space of my own:
|This bird bath is simple but lovely details that match the flowers that surround it.|
|When I lived in CA I had flower beds hanging over the railings of my apartment|
I'd love to install beds and have such color outside my windows.
|Ivy and vine climbing may damage house walls but to have lattices up the sides would be lovely.|
|The variety of blooms and colors, event the different heights, make this looks like somewhere|
faeries live and dance with butterflies. I'd love something this beautiful in my yard.
|Something like this, leading up to the front door, on a raised bed with stepping stones.|
Maybe some day soon I'll have a space to create my dream garden.
