A Mere Formality

Miracles do happen! Husband is excited about my idea for a formal garden in the back yard rather than grass with flower beds on the perimeter. Now, mind you, I've been bringing up this idea about every 6 months for the last 3 years. I know that persistence pays off.

Now for the list. I'm making it big, I think I'll end up with more that way. We need a fountain, a bird bath, a koi pond, a shaded sitting area, a small house looking building (I'm not sure what for quite yet) and lots and lots of plants!

Wow, that is exciting. It seems like creating gardens for the sake of a GARDEN rather than a distant sort of decoration is getting a little rarer, which is a shame-- they're marvelous when you're inside a good one. Best of luck with it!

Oh how fantastic! I have such dreams for a garden one day! I absolutely love English gardens with lots of hedges and pebbled walks! The best of luck! I would love to see some of your plans!

It's all so exciting and I worry (not much though) that I make my family crazy thinking and planning. I can't wait to have our little piece of beauty.
