2010 - A New Beginning!


Well I've spent the first few days of the New Year making some changes around the house and planning how to implement some of my new ideas for a new garden for next spring. The first thing I did was to rearrange my bedroom to include an office space.



This has made all the difference in the world in my attitude when I walk into my bedroom. I feel more inspired and creative now. That makes me happy.
And me being happy is the most important thing in the whole scheme of all of my big plans.
The next thing that has gotten me excited about this year is my plan for a new garden here at Chesapeake Gardens. Last year I added a rose garden. My EarthKind Rose Garden was a wonderful success and I am so very proud of it. Here are few of my favorite pictures of the rose garden.

Now that winter has set in, I am concentrating on my plans for a White -Theme Garden

which would consist of Sweet Violets, Trailling Petunias, Zinnia Elegans, Impatients, Marigolds, Iris, and & Daisies or an Evening Garden.




This garden will consist of flowers in pale shades, and silvery foliage that glow in dwindling light, and flora perfumes that scent the evening air. Shade loving perennials placed under a tree already in the garden with perennials for sun such as Aster, Arternisa, and Veronica will complete the layout. These free-form garden spaces are best suited around a patio or deck.

As you can see I'm very excited about my new garden plans and look forward to sharing my new adventure with my fellow gardeners. I hope that you will follow me on my new journey.

I get my ideas and garden plans from many sources. These are two of many courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens. You can visit the website at http://www.bhg.com/.

Take care and until next time,

Happy Gardening!

The white moon garden is something I had hoped to do, but I think I'm getting too old to start another new project. I will love following along and seeing yours and how you put plants together.
