    I am beyond in love with your garden! Our growing season is so short here that I despair sometimes! It wasn’t taken care of at all before we got here either but I have my plans and we will see, using you for inspiration, I will probably get a lot more done! :)

    Your garden is absolutely breath-taking. I love the fairy door at the base of the tree – so cute!

    I feel the desire to encroach on my back lawn coming over me…. I want little rooms of gardens that inter-connect through gates and doors We used to have one in our old neighborhood in the city. My favorite part was the tall shrubs that walled most of the garden from the street yet had a circle cut right through so you could look in. Yummy stuff!!!

    I love, your secret garden and the alice in wonderland accents. We just moved into some new property and I can’t wait to get started on the gardens.

    I think that you, my dear, should give garden/house tours and have a TV show! My goodness, you have more talent in on pinky than Martha has on all fours! ;-)

    Beautiful makeover of your front porch, I love it! Wisteria is something I have always wanted, so romantic and the fragrance OMG!! How many years did yours take before the 1st bloom and how do you keep up with such a magnificent garden, keeping weeds and grass from invading your gardens?

    • farmhouseK8 April 15, 2013 at 5:14 pm Reply

      Thanks for the kind words, Jeanne! Oh TRUST ME, there are lots of weeds out there! There are, however, less these days because the chickens actually do a remarkable job of removing them (they also do their fair share of destruction to the intended plants in the garden, as well–it’s a bit of a give and take with them). The wisteria is going on five years old now, and is JUST this season really starting to bloom like crazy. I’d say the first few blooms showed up during its second growing season, but it was something like two or three blossoms, and each year since, there have been more and more.
