After Christmas, I shared with you about the gift from my husband of the garden house…do you remember? If you don’t, here is the link. In that post, I showed you photo’s of a few gathered items that I think will be put to use in my Garden House. These sweet little galvanized dividers – probably intended for office supplies, however when I saw them, my mind thought – SEEDS! Last week, I was at the dollar store and picked up quite a few seed packets to see how they would look in my containers ~ decided these are pretty darn cute!
We are expecting rain this weekend, so I plan to throw the seeds in the garden then!
You are probably wondering what the deal is with the garden shed, right? I’ve been exploring my local ideas an options and have finally decided get a spot in line using Bob Bowling Rustics ~ a local artist here in Washington State. Bob and I are in the process of designing this dream of mine together ~ what I originally wanted was much larger than what I finally decided on. I really wanted the look of a garden house that has been placed in my garden for years ~ something “tucked in”. Here is a photo of where the house will go – you can see where the stakes are ~ right in the middle of the grass – so this look of being “tucked in” will be hard to achieve as my garden landscape is still so young.
For me, this will be a fun project to focus on over the next couple years and someday it will be just what I wanted. You can only imagine the obsessive ideas that are consuming my head. I’m trying really hard not to start any new landscaping until the house has been delivered and constructed. Although I did order this beautiful climbing tea rose ~ it’s called “Sombreuil”. I look forward to nurturing in on the patio until it gets placed in its permanent home.
and see these pretty white blooms…? I’m planning ahead, because in another month these won’t be available in the nurseries. Iceberg Roses, Delphinium and Foxglove and sandwort. I also plan to dig up a few of my perennials that I already have in the garden and set them aside to plant them in the area as well ~ columbine,
Excited to share the journey of this new addition with you! Hope you are having a great week! Be sure to check out my link to any parties I am joining! xoox, tracie
The new structure is going to be amazing. I'm totally envious, but can't WAIT to see it all come together.
Wonderful white flowers ;:OD).
Have a nice weekend!
First of all, thanks for hosting the new garden party! I was too late last week and I am pleased to participate this week again wish new Pictures of my roses.
Oh you lucky Girl! You are getting a garden house! That's sounds so fantastic! I'd like to have one one day, too. But I can't decide it's final place in the garden... Maybe I should just get started....
Happy gardening and Keep us posted on the Progress!
Warm wishes from Germany
I am a totally gaga for anything galvanized, the older the better. These storage containers are very cool. Good luck with the seeds. Don't forget the slug bait. :)
Love your photos and looking forward to seeing your garden...
