The Triangle Garden Revisited

Triangle1

Our driveway is at an angle from the street. When we decided to place our vegetable garden on the west side of our house (where we get the most sun), we made that angled driveway part of the design. Hubby built the nine 4 x 4 raised beds for the veggies and placed them in a grid pattern parallel to the house and the sidewalk, leaving plenty of walk space between them. That left a big triangle between the garden and the driveway.

This Spring I decided to honor the triangle by filling it with flowers. I ordered seeds for Zahara Zinnias after seeing a display of them at Farmington Gardens last Fall. They were so beautiful and different from zinnias I had seen before, so I planted masses of them…much closer together than the instructions on the seed packet said to do. Then I watered them and waited. I was not disappointed! They are quite beautiful, the bees like them, and they add a lot of color to our veggie garden!

June in the Garden

It’s so easy to take a short blogging break that ends up being much longer than anticipated! In an attempt to get myself back to blogging about my garden, I’ve decided to post a garden photo a day for the month of June. I enjoy taking photos when I’m outside watering or puttering around, and I think it will help me to resume my online journaling about our garden in the Grove. I hope you enjoy the daily shots this month! Here’s the first one, taken this morning.
