Today I finished replacing it with some old fencing, an old head board and lots of lath. No potting bench but I did hide this picnic bench along the back and it will have to serve as a station to store or fill pots and keep hand tools. I planted a species clematis with blue bells on the inside to grow up into the headboard... Cost $0
When I abandoned the larger garden and let it go wild, I promised myself I would be disciplined and limit myself to this area for flowers and I have been quite good. Except for the peony garden in back and the small area by my little porch.... I have kept to this. It is about 15' x 30' and is all perennials so it is never all in bloom. The daffodils and brunnera and hellebores have just finished and the peonies, sweet Cecily, alliums, and doronicum are starting. The alliums used to be inside the stone wall but insisted on seeding on the outside. I used to dig them up and move them back inside but they only thrived outside the wall. They win!!!
The tall fenced area you see in the background is my tiny veggie garden and the fence keeps the deer and rabbits out. It won't be long until we have peas and beans.
