READER PHOTOS! Cynthia's garden in Kansascomments (14) March 7th, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Cynthia Blixt in Merriam, Kansas. She says, "My husband built my garden out of some large rocks. He works for a construction company and had access to the right kind of equipment to move the rocks into a horseshoe shape. After filling in the raised area with dirt, I didn't have very much money for plants the first year. So, I add a little more each year. The garden is starting to fill in nicely now but I would still like it to be even more full and lush. The major colors employed are purple, pink and yellow. The main perennials of the garden are two butterfly bushes. I try to use mostly native and/or very tough plants. This area of the country really has extremes with weather. Last winter we had a lot of snow and ice but in the summer the temperature was over 100 degrees for almost a month. In contrast, this winter we have barely had any snow." Beautiful plantings, Cynthia! Keep us posted this year. We'd love to see more photos. Thanks!
