This is my "New Project" in the garden. Even tho my creaky body argues with me about all the work a garden takes . . my soul can't help but be calmed by the visions, scents and sounds of a beautiful outdoor room.
I had this idea last year and it just never materialized . . . . I have always wanted a "Colonial Style" kitchen garden. Complete with raised beds and gravel paths, herbs, vegetables, flowers. Somewhere to go pick the evenings dinner . . and walk a few steps back to the kitchen.
The first pic is an old "island" garden that while pretty when in bloom I really never liked the lump in the back yard . . . so we decided to use the garden girl statue as a center and begin . . . .
We hired a man with a power post hole digger to dig the holes! Smart..huh? We weren't even going to attempt it in our dirt!
Then the raising of the fence began . . . . stay tuned as we round the corners and build the beds . . . .
I'm incorporating an antique gate too!
