It’s okay to get help, right?
Most of you who follow Fishtail Cottage – know that I take pride in the fact that I have designed my cottage garden myself, hand chosen every single plant that has gone into the landscape and planted it myself! I have yet to ask for help outside of my husband! However with hitting the five year milestone of living here in this home, and feeling a bit overwhelmed with what I have accomplished – my husband has convinced me to treat myself with some help! Here is what the garden looks like this am!
The shrubs need a little trimming; the trees need some guidance and the garden needs some, well – “control” of the seedlings that have seemed to leap! Of course some mulch will help as well!
So I’ve hired the perfect company to do all this for me…& they are here today & probably tired of me going out there just about every five minutes to make sure they are doing it all “right”!!!!
I feel like I just gave up control of my most prized possession! but I know I can’t be super woman for everything! My stomach is in knots as to what if they pull the wrong plant, or damage a garden bulb? or what if they just do it wrong? ugh…I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t in panic mode right now!
Tomorrow, I will share with you what it looks like again. To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie
PS - Fishtail Cottage is now on Facebook
Can't wait to see the results. Sit back and relax!

If you hired professionals, they will know what to do.
I finally gave in and got help with design for our backyard when we removed the rest of the grass. Many of the garden gurus I know still get professional help for various reasons even though they could probably do the job themselves.
It will be nice to see your after photos.
I know that we all need help sometimes..and I know that I should give in and have someone do some work for me outside. Maybe I will -you are a good model for that! I can't wait to see the after pictures- xo Diana
You have such positive energy and intentions, and it shows in everything you do.
Enjoy the breather--it won't last, you know! ;o)
My hubby and I have hit rock bottom. So much work and so little time. I love my garden but I also like some time to enjoy it too..I may be hiring help next season..or reducing the amount of gardens that we have..Something's got to give! LOL! The next time help arives you may feel much better..
I look forward to seeing the finished garden! :D
PS I think it is very reasonable to get help.
Your garden is gorgeous! I sure could use some help with mine!
I'm new and am totally confused about how to make my own site or exactly where to post. but I love looking at all the beauty you ladies create!!!!
