Jessica’s Tiny, Eccentric Garden

Lots of interest can be packed into a small space

I’m Jessica Williams, and I have a tiny, eccentric garden that I thought your readers might enjoy. It is organic and very pollinator-friendly while also providing food, flowers, and fun for people all in a very small backyard.

Flower arrangementsFlower arrangements need not be stiff and formal. This wonderful collection of blooms brings all of the gardens inside to be enjoyed and appreciated up close.

    Jessica, you are such a tease! I really want to see a wider view of your small garden since I love the bits you have shown us. The colors and structure of the garden barn intrigue me. Fun!
