INSPIRATION THURSDAY, INFORMAL PERENNIAL GARDEN

This is such a neat picture.  It's another one of the first ones I ever saved when we started thinking about looking for land to buy.  I have always said that while I do like formal design gardens, I think I love randomness and mixing like this.  It looks like they just sprang up and started growing.

We have some areas on the property now that look just like this, MINUS the flowers of course.  There are a few trees scattered around like the ones here and this inspires me to get the planning ready for next Spring and decide on the flowers I want to plant.

Today is my blog day off, I'll catch up on everyone's posts tomorrow and this weekend.  And don't forget to enter the cookbook giveaway.

Isn't it pretty that way? It's sort of casual yet formal. It doesn't look planned, if you do it right of course, ha.

Thank you and thank you, ha. I missed being able to catch up with comments. Trying now to get current. The flowers are so pretty huh? Sigh, next Spring I'm afraid before we see anything like this, ha.

Planned randomness, ha. Or wait, could we call it planned acts of randomness? HA
