GBDW – Entrance Gardens Wrap-Up


Just a few links this month, so let’s get right to them:

Garden Bloggers’ Design Workshop – Entrance Gardens (Nan at Gardening Gone Wild): Kick-off post for this month’s topic.

Garden Walls and Fences (Cameron at Designing Your Home): Originally written for last month’s GBDW, Cameron’s post on her front-yard cottage garden works just as well for this topic.

Working on the Weekend (Jayne at Jayne’s Country Garden): Instead of living with a foundation planting of sickly hollies, Jayne renovated the area from the ground up to get a fresh new look.

Have You Got Space for Wildflowers in Your Garden? (Claire at Plantpassion): Claire turned a tough-to-mow grass strip along the road into a colorful mini-meadow. She posted an update with more pictures and a list of the wildflower ingredients in Wildflowers in a Small Space Update.

Thanks to all who participated by reading and/or posting this month!

About Nancy J. Ondra

Nan gardens on 4 acres in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In the firm belief that every garden ought to have a pretentious-sounding (or at least pretentious-looking) name, she refers to her home grounds as "Hayefield." There, she experiments with a wide variety of plants and planting styles, from cottage gardens and color-based borders to managed meadows, naturalistic plantings, and veggies--all under the watchful eyes of her two pet alpacas, Daniel and Duncan.

    That path is glorious and it invites one to meander further into the garden. Lovely.

    Thanks, Nancy. I wish it looked like that now. At the moment, it’s just sodden and muddy.

    That path is perfectly gorgeous. Loving the bright and vibrant colors popping from this garden. It exudes spring time.

    You’re very kind, Belle. Thanks for the comment!
