Cottage Style Blooms at the Front Walks....

Welcome Back!
Thanks so much for visiting today!!
Before May has come and gone... 
I wanted to show you more of my Spring blooms.
I love a cottage style garden.
Abundance of blooms, color and LUSH!
Mixed planting of high and low blooms.
I want you to have something pretty all season long.
A tapestry of colors where everything goes.

Shrubs add drama with dark contrasting leaf colors...
And of course, it is a bonus when they bloom as well.
But really, it is all about the flowers for me.
The roses are just ready to POP!
This walk will be filled with pink the next time you visit.
But until then I have loads of irises and peonies.
My hydrangeas will be next.
Isn't this 'Doreen' peony just lovely?
The peonies have been so pretty this year.
A look up the path to the porch...
Soon my coneflowers and daylilies will overflow this area.
What else is in this bed?
Phlox, yarrow, boxwoods... it is FULL!
But I love it that way...
See this low area... it won't be for long.
There is a lovely Snow in the Summer Viburnum growing into this area.
You can barely see it, but it is blooming already.
It will fill this space in no time! 
I hope you love county-cottage style gardens as much as I do!
More is just...BETTER!
Thanks so much for visiting....Brooke


  1. Your gardens are so beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. With a drought in southern California and a puppy, my garden is not as lovely as I would like.

    Each photo made me dream of the day when we have water and Lulu is no longer digging up everything I plant.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers!
