I love flowers in my home. At the moment (and the foreseeable future) I have fake ones scattered about. I don't mind that as they are pretty and very realistic looking. However, it would be so much fun to having a small cutting garden out back to cut fresh flowers from to bring inside. I never even thought about it until this gal suggested it! She's a wonderful gardener herself so it was only fitting that she would suggest it.
Here are some examples of some cutting gardens that I could realistically see in my back yard.
Wouldn't it be fun to just go in your own backyard and cut from a designated area? I would rather do that than take away any decorative blooms from flowers I'm using in my landscaping.
Many of these cutting gardens have building and planting instructions! (You can just click on "source" below each picture.)
Heck, we plant a small vegetable garden every year. It would be nice to include a cutting garden too. Honey, are you reading this?
I could even adorn it with a cute sign!
Of course, it would be pure fantasy to have a border of lush flowers around the perimeter of our backyard to look like this! But, I wouldn't want to take blooms away from that.
So, I'm back to a nice raised bed style cutting garden.
I'll have to see. In the meantime, I will dream about it some more.
Thanks for stopping by!
