Home Is Where My Story Begins

What’s Your Garden Style?

What’s your garden style?  Where do you get your inspiration?
I’m a country/cottage garden kind of girl.  I knew what I wanted my yard to look like when I first set foot into Carpooler Michelle’s garden.  She actually gave me most of my first plants for my garden.  Perennials are the way to go!

I don’t like formal.  I love flowers, but not pink.  I want lots of color and it’s ok if it looks a little messy some times.

I want a veggie garden mixed in with the flowers.

But, like I said, I want lots of flowers for cutting.

I need places to sit in the sunshine, watch the kids run through the sprinkler, and relax after a day filled with yard work.
If you are a fan of the cottage garden look, you MUST visit Teresa’s blog, over at Meadowbrook Farm
My biggest inspiration comes from Country Gardens magazine.

I’ve subscribed to Country Gardens for years and have saved every issue.  I have learned so much from this magazine and always find new inspiration.
Well, I’m off to deadhead a few flowers and pull a few weeds!
Happy gardening!

    Oh my goodness! I love your garden! I'm new to the whole blogging thing and I just posted a bunch of pics of our backyard garden yesterday! I'm wanting to start a veggie garden next year too.

    It's gorgeous, Becca! Love your perfect mix of all your pretty flowers and veggies. Aren't Adirondacks a must in the cottage garden? They're my favorite style of outdoor chair.
    Thank you so much for the shout out! Enjoy your weekend.
