March snow made another appearance last night, which has us thinking even more about spring. For this week’s Thursday’s Theme, we’ve compiled a few photos of plants and features we would love to have in our [dream] garden. Tell us what’s on your wishlist, and share your spring gardening plans with us in a comment below.
Flowers, of course.
We love when a variety of colors and shapes makes a bold and cheerful statement in a garden – especially when they are mixed together.
Vegetables, of course.
Yes, the garden of our dreams would be both a flower garden and vegetable garden. Handmade raised beds for the latter, please.
A vertical section would be perfect up against a fence, a decorative trellis or a bare exterior wall (yes, cats would definitely be the rulers of our garden).
A creative/whimsical feature.
We could definitely get creative with some potted plants and displays, like this one showing a terracotta pot tipped over, “spilling” the flowers out into the mulch. Or a shovel garden stake adorned with metal garden pots.
A gathering place.
Above all else, we’d love a garden we could share with friends and loved ones. An outdoor table with enough space for coffee, tea (or a cocktail) and snacks would be the cherry on top of our dream garden sundae.
