Gardening Inspiration II

Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while.  It has been hard to do anything outside since it’s been cold and rainy.  And actually, I think that it is too early to be doing any gardening.  Last weekend I went to Lowe’s and a specialty garden store and they didn’t have any lilac bushes or lavender.  Those are the main things I am looking for.

I have started the garden process by having the City of Fargo come to our house and mark off where hidden electrical and plumbing so I can do some digging in our yard.

Once I get motivation to work hard in the garden, I intend on digging up all of the grass you see.  I want to remove all of the square concrete step stones, if that is what you want to call them.  Towards the right side, all the way to the back is where I plan to use the most colorful plants….roses, lilies etc.  A combination of all types of plants, perenials, annuals, bushes and grasses are what I am looking for.

Here are some more inspirational pictures that I have taken ideas from:

1.  I love the choice of colors in this picture.  I want all of the different colors and heights of plants in this picture.

2.  I love the use of a archway with flowing colorful plants covering it.  I am not sure if I can fit one like this on my garden due to space, but I may have something for plants to grow on.

3.  I may not have a table and chairs like this in my garden, but I would like to have a little vignette, or even more comfortable seating with a little end table.

4.  I must have lots of lavender and plants that smell good.  They not only smell good, but look good too.

As you can see…I have a lot of work to do.  If it would get warm and stay warm long enough to get started I will get this project started.  I will post my progess as I start in case you need some gardening inspiration.
