How many of you like to garden?
I have a theory. Smaller homes equal less housework, which means more time for gardening! :)
Does anyone else like to garden? I love cottage gardens (big surprise LOL) especially old fashioned roses with daisies, coneflowers, cosmos, lavender, salvias and stock. Also like butterfly bushes, lilacs, peonies and blueberry bushes in the garden. May not be for everyone, but blueberries between the roses and the back yard, seem to keep the deer away...at least for now!
My other favorite annual combinations are zinnias, sunflowers and marigolds in the veggie garden and star jasmine and white petunias by the porch. Star jasmine is an annual here (and doesn't usually get very big) but I love it with the petunias...very pretty :)
