The walled garden is looking really beautiful these days. Take a look for yourself:
That red lily though... it needs to go. I am planning a few changes in my garden - there will be a large new bed in the chestnut garden (let´s just call it that) and I think this is where the lily will go.
This cute red flower can stay though! It looks lovely everywhere.
Speaking of the chestnut garden, this is one of the beds that already exist. The white echinacea is lovely but they aren´t super happy here (I think there´s too much sun/heat). Also I´ll do mixed borders here as well - I thought I´d only want mixed beds in the walled garden and a more mono-thematic style elsewhere, but I´m not happy with it. So we´ll mix things up!
I´ve mentioned before that I wanted to add more color to the vegetable garden this year and well, it´s been a bit of a learning curve. For example I planted marigolds in the tomato beds and for some reason, they grew as high as the tomatoes! Not ideal since tomatoes need all the sun they can get. I had to rip them out. This wildflower border is a bit more successful.
Also in the veggie garden, the cosmos in this old oil barrel look nice enough although I´ve learned that cosmos are definitely happier in solid soil. They need a lot of water and aren´t heat resistant at all when potted. You live, you learn!
Have a happy week!
