Looking good David. My DW goes with the cottage garden look too, wouldn't have it any other way.

Dear Wife... it's a short hand kinda thing. DH, DD, DS etc... Dear Husband, Dear Daughter, Dear Son...

I found your thread David and your pics are AWESOME. I always prefer the "landscape" pics over the "single specimen" pics. Thank you for sharing your pictures. A DG (DaveGarden) friend mailed me a camera so I'm hoping this summer to be posting some of my own pictures this year. A friend dug up and mailed me over 300 bulbs late this fall so we hired a guy and he removed sod and I increased my flower beds by 3X. I'm so eager to see how my plantings turned out!!! Many I simply had to stuff into above ground flower beds to hold them since the worker didn't get the sod removed in time and I needed to get the bulbs in the ground NOW!!!

I enjoyed this so much. Cottage gardens can be anywhere. Of course around an actual cottage like your is even better. Just love the way you painted- decorated your cottage and all the plants are great. My dream was a cottage & garden like yours only I always had to build my Cottages new because the only older homes in my town are is very unsafe neighborhoods. I ultimately ended up with a victorial style 2/3 required brick house on an acre I try to make cottagy- but yours-well what a dream.

Thank you for inviting us on a walk through your garden - it's always fun to see the different ways folks in different parts of the world interpret the cottage garden theme and yours speaks to that very well. Nicely done serendipitous elements among the flowers, too.

I'm always inspired by David's use of color and texture.

David, do you "map" you planting bed out before you plant? Or do use my method, trial and error? Whatever method you use it sure is working out for you! ☺

David, I'm still house hunting but I'm coming closer to a decision (and can make an offer when I get my pre-qualified letter from the mortgage company). Then I'll have a whole new set of gardening challenges to face. Each of the 3 houses's back yard garden area are soooooooo different. I'll let you know with pics when it's a done deal.
