My little garden gnome has found a new place to rest. About a month ago I found the little garden cottage while shopping at Home Goods. It was still cold, we had snow on the ground but I knew it needed to jump in my cart and come home with me.
I just love my cute little cottage! A mini version of my home. I planted pansies and the phlox are coming up quite nicely. The phlox will be in all their glory around mid- to late July.
This is the time of year when I actually love dandelions. I know, I won't feel that way for long. But they just remind me of my childhood and a time when I thought they were the prettiest flower around!
Things are greening up quite nicely around here. See the rain gage? Hubby checks that quite religiously.
We do need rain but I am loving our sunny and 70's weather.
The hydrangea ivy is filling in quite nicely. Later, it will be filled with beautiful white flowers.
It's even wrapping itself around the front porch. Hubby wants to trim it back but I'm not so sure. I kind like the wild look!
A bleeding heart coming along. Please ignore the weeds! I am trying to get them but my stitches still hurt a bit. OW!
I love this plant, however I always forget their names. I save the little markers but they still get misplaced.
Some fun perennials! Drats! I tend to forget what I planted last year.
I know this is a catnip type plant that I put in last year. Lily, our kitty, is always rolling around on it.
Baby's Breath I believe.
Some chives . Well that's about it for now. I will be so excited when the lilacs and apple trees are in bloom. Won't be long! Please visit our hostess Susan, for some OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY FUN. And I am joining Marla, @ Always Nesting for her new blog party called WOOHOO! Wednesday . Check it out! Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
