Fishtail Cottage Garden 5/25/15

Peonies are in bloom this week which means the vision that I had for this walkway years ago is in full effect!  Polar Joy Rose Trees and Sandra Bernhardt peonies to bloom at the same time as I walk up to my front door…

On the arch grows the most fragrant roses, a combination of Blush Noisette and Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Roses. 

Isn’t it all so welcoming?

In the back there is a lot going on too! Peonies and roses are bringing so much color to the garden.  If you have a specific question about a plant variety, please email me! always happy to help.


The Snowbell Trees are blooming now..they are absolutely gorgeous and so fragrant next to the patio! I have both the white and pink variety!


No matter where you look in the garden, there is always something special that catches my eye.  I love seeing the pinks and yellow combinations.

They say patience in a garden is key…turns out to be so right as I am finally seeing a bloom on this White Calla Lily.  I planted it years ago and think it’s finally climbed its way out of hiding.  I honestly don’t believe I’ve ever seen a bloom on it – glad I never removed it and just let nature work it’s wonders.

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful week! xoxo, tracie

I found myself come back to your lovely garden time gain! Especially your garden gate is mesmerizing!! What a joy to come home to! Your garden looks like it just came out of a magazine cover. But I wonder if the peonies dosen't look more like 'Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt' than 'Sahara Bernard'.
