Welcome to a partial tour of the gardens at the Cottage! Over the years I have developed a love for gardening and devote a large part of my summer days working in them. I like the cooler colors of the garden, lots of pinks in every shade, purples, blues and white to keep things calm and to brighten dark shady spots. To name just a few of what is planted, we have: Roses, Clematis, Begonias, Snapdragons, Petunias (a Charlevoix speciality, they line the streets in town), Bee Balm, Peonies, Zinnias and my new favorite, Hydrangeas. My other favorite - beautiful green grass! I also have shady areas that hold a variety of Hosta, Woodruff, Foxglove, Astilbe, Ferns and Primrose. Like a lot of gardeners I do battle with the deer, they ate a whole flat of Petunias before I could even get them in the ground!
This post primarily focuses on the Hydrangeas (which are glorious right now). Somehow I missed taking great pictures of the Roses, there is always next year. Enjoy the tour!
This was not color enhance, isn't this a beautiful shade of blue!!
Again the color of nature, is it any wonder that I love pink!
Hope you liked the 50¢ Garden Tour, I think it might have been worth at least a dollar! Thanks for visiting! Tell us what is in your garden.
