I love planning my garden. I keep putting in flowers and plants, thinking “this is probably going to look really good in a few years”.
Here’s the plan for the left side of our yard along the fence, cutesy illustration style:
That’s the neighbor’s tree, but it’s very close to the fence and it hangs over our yard. Hydrangeas (and hostas) will do well in the shade underneath. A variegated Ivory Halo Dogwood will provide some privacy for the egg chair that I want so badly, and peonies and a lilac bush will provide some nice spring blooms.
