INSPIRATION THURSDAY

Herb Garden all neat in rows
Those who have followed my blog know that I have a thing for orderly garden rows.  I like the wild, natural look in certain areas, but I also like this nice, neat design like in this person's garden.

I think there's room for both in a landscape, don't you?

Blog day off, see you in 24 hours!

I happen to love nice neat gardens. I just don't happen to be a nice neat gardener....yet. I did keep my raised bed neat last year though and since all my gardens will be raised beds next year maybe I will finally have some order.

Coming in on my blog day off to say thanks for visiting again! Yes, I totally agree with you, but it sure looks pretty huh? LOL! Plus the plants sometimes don't stay in those neat rows, ha. I'm hoping when I get our raised beds in, we'll have some order of some sort. :-)

Yes, I think that there is room for both. Most of my garden is not in rows though. I do a lot of companion planting and tend to stick things in here and there.Before we got the plots, I had very limited space. So I had most things planted in triangles in order to get the most out of the space.

My herb garden is more like a cottage garden. So nothing is planted in rows there.

1st Man, I wanted to return the blog visit and thank you for leaving such a kind comment. I love your blog. Looks like you all are tackling a lot of the same things we are. It's a lot of work in starting a homestead and fixing up an old house, but there's never a dull moment. :) Your herb garden is beautiful, BTW.

@Leigh: You are very sweet, thank you. Yes, love your blog as well. You are further ahead than us so I can look to you for inspiration. There hasn't been a dull moment yet, that's for sure, ha.

@Robin: I'm sure I may want nice orderly rows but when I get it in the ground and start it growing, it's liable to take on a mind of it's own, ha. I like the idea of triangles, that makes sense. Love cottage garden styles too, dang, decisions decisions!

Robin said...

I was really trying to make your decisions a little more confusing....I see it worked!!

@Robin: Yeah, thanks alot! ;-) Ha, you know I'm just kidding!

That's what I am loving about blogging, espeically when people comment and share advice and ideas.

I'm going to have to start on the gardens soon, at least getting the ground cleared and the beds built, before the weather is too cold to work outside (though I don't see that on the horizon anytime soon, ha), so I'll have to make those decisions sooner rather than later. Thanks always!
