I Want That!


This is exactly the garden I want to eventually have: English Cottage Gardens, Alaskan Style!

I have never, ever seen a cottage garden as beautiful as this one.
Total plant porn!

A few people over on GW were lamenting about it being much too packed with plants with no style. I most humbly disagree! No style?! Hmmmm...

I suppose with 6 months of daylight, it grows without too much effort -But I could never, ever deal with 6 months of darkness. Hell, I'm lucky I can make it through a few months of decreased sunlight. I'd be reduced to a melted, depressed, dismal puddle up there in winter.

Plants growing on top of plants. I want that!

What a wonderful garden! It doesn't look very big but is absolutely crammed full of plants and colour.
I don't blame you for wanting it! xx

Hiya Flighty!
Yeah, isn't it just...fab?
Color everywhere you look!
I'm glad you agree it's wonderful.

Everyone needs a blast of colour in January!! It's just the sort of garden my Dad had, his theory was the more plants the less space for weed, he loved bright flowers (and colours that were a little gaudy)

Hi there, uphilldowndale, thanks so much for dropping by!
Yes, color in January is fabulous. Color in February and March, even better as I sick of the white crap so much by then that I'd like to scream!
What - gaudy not pretty?
