Vicki is sharing her garden with us today.
I have been gardening in this location in Illinois for 10 years. I have a variety of flowers, dragonwing begonias, bee balm, hostas, phlox, and balloon flowers. I have had trouble this year with deer eating hostas. I do all the planting, and my husband does the mowing.
Pots of dragonwing begonias (Begonia hybrids, Zones 10–11 or as an annual) provide a pop of color next to a spot to sit and enjoy the garden.
Creative containers and garden art liven up the space.
A variety of garden art brightens up a fence, and adding a mirror tricks the eye into making the space feel bigger.
