Today's photos are from Colleen Meyer in Neenah, Wisconsin. She says, "I really look forward to and throughly enjoy the daily garden visits. My husband and I purchased our house in May of 2013. The landscaping was terribly neglected and in need of lots of love. The summer of 2013 I planted a few plants but it was a more of weeding and planning year. So this before picture is this spring where we removed the white stone gravel and planted." So great, Colleen! I cannot WAIT to see how this garden evolves over the years. Please do send us updates!

Freshly planted.. We lost our evergreens over the harsh winter and planted a 'Unique' hydrangea, 'Pinky Winky' hydrangea, some transplanted sedum, iris, purple coneflowers, a beautiful pink morning glory, and a severely clearanced 'Chyenne Spirit' echinacea.

'Rainbow' butterfly bush, purple monarda, blue cardinal flower, native columbine, 'Vanilla' marigolds, sunflowers, tomatoes, black-eyed Susan, and coreopsis.

Calla lily from a wonderful friend, cosmos and zinnias were started by the kids in an eggshell.

Coleus started by kids:) snapdragons, marigolds and a Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'

Planter near the house, beautiful fall sun.

Where everything started this year. Spring was so cold, so it was back and forth for weeks in the garage.

My wonderful little helpers.
