I had such a great time this weekend visiting with a fellow gardener. It is such a joy to see what others do with their gardens and to share their enthusiasm for gardening. And on this particular visit, I came away with a whole trunk full of plant cuttings to root – a wonderful addition to my garden. Visiting someone else’s garden is so great for getting ideas and just sharing your love of the outdoors.
Structures in this garden added to the texture of this yard, adding various heights and shapes. Most of her structures were made of natural materials, although I did see some metal pieces.
Greenhouse of Recycled Windows
This was so neat! The owner was getting the windows in her house replaced, so she used the old windows to construct a greenhouse/potting shed. It was so spacious, and she and her husband built it themselves!
Plants and More Plants
Like me, this gardener enjoys providing native plants that provide habitat for butterflies, birds, and more. The variety of plants in her garden was amazing.
Like I said, I came away with so many cuttings. I went thinking I was getting a cutting of a variegated lantana and instead I came away with a trunk load! I didn’t even know that you could root hydrangea cuttings. I’m so excited to see what will come of all this. It took me all afternoon to get the cuttings potted and under the tree. I’ll show you how things progress in the coming weeks. Wish me luck!
