I have been so
lazy uninspired about my own garden this year. I decided to do something about it! Stalk someone else's garden!
I heard about master gardener, Irina last spring. Much "oooh-ing" and "ahhh-ing" and "You should feature Irina's garden on your blog!"
Being Johnny On The Spot, I contacted Irina in August. Yes, we hadn't seen rain since 1962. Yes, all the spring/summer blooms were gone. Yes! This is the time to feature Irina's garden!
This is what separates the rookie gardeners from the pro gardeners.
While my lawn could be described as "post apocalypse style", Irina's garden felt like a trip to the Hampton's.
Clearly, much thought and planning and care have gone into Irina's garden. She has created pathways, visual interest for each season, and cozy gathering spaces.
Take a lookiloo:

How about you? Do you have a well planned garden or are you a fly by the seat of your pants gardener?
