Today's photos are from long-time GPOD reader and submitter Bonnie Pancoast (see her gardens HERE!) Today she says, "When we moved into our home in November of 2004 the only garden beds were foundation plantings. The present gardens began in 2005 with a modest creation of a garden bed adjacent to our driveway and the road. Over the years I've removed poison ivy vines, raspberry canes, and an assortment of weeds to create garden rooms. The beds were originally filled with both divided perennials brought from our old home and store bought annuals. I must admit I was not expecting the proliferation of plants as annuals reseeded and perennials jumped their beds. I have come to realize that because of their continued proliference I have been able to increase the area of the gardens without having to continually oversee established beds. Minimal weeding in spring is all that is needed, which leaves time to enjoy the gardens!" As beautiful as always, Bonnie! ***Remember Bonnie's awesome labyrinth? I'm featuring it in my talk at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show next Wednesday!
Speaking of Seattle, it's just about time to decide where we'll all meet up! For those of you attending the Northwest Flower & Garden Show next week, what do you think of meeting in the lobby bar of the Sheraton right after my talk at 3:15 on Wednesday? Maybe 4:30? I'll be the one holding nametags and a pen….
