Cottage Garden – Spring 2018

The goal is to demonstrate how a “Cottage Garden” look can be accomplished in this area of Texas. The bones of the garden (roses, shrubs, bulbs, some perennials, etc.) remain the same year after year. New plants are added seasonally to bring a new and interesting look to the garden. The ambiance of the “cottage” and “porch” lend much to this garden as do the arbors, fences and bridges.
