I saw Alice last week at card club. She asked a question that stopped me in my tracks, for a moment.
“Do you have any plans for the garden this summer?”
It has been so cold and my thoughts have been so distant from my own garden. Lots of blog-hopping, enjoying other gardens, but not really thinking about my own yet.
She shook the icicles out of my brain – plans? Why, come to think of it, yes, I believe I do.
I have been wanting to do a little landscaping on the shady side of the house for some time. I’ve been thinking, and thinking, and thinking. It’s time for some doing!
Yes, I’d like to create a path that leads from the front corner of the yard, down the shady side of the property, to the picket fence that welcomes visitors to the rear yard. I envision an arbor there.
I’m thinking the path needs to be steps, because the sloping down to the fence is rather steep. I’d also like to incorporate a couple of walls, to keep the front yard in the front, and the side yard on the side!
Alice did recommend starting with the steps. Gonna be a lot of work, but get the steps in first and decorate from there.
So now I’m on a mission, have some vision as to what comes first, and on to thinking and planning for Spring.
What are you planning for your garden?
