The snow this year has been ridiculous.
I will NOT be making up snow days during spring break because I HAVE PLANS, PEOPLE!!!
We have a garden gate at Brandywine…and it is HORRENDOUS! (Big shock, right? Like everything else in this neglected place.)
I got this off of Pinterest, but it didn’t lead me back to a post. Sorry!
I have adopted this gate as my own personal project, and have been pinning ideas for the past year.
My parents had the coolest gardens at their little house (not the house where I grew up, but the house they built when they retired), and I cannot hope to be the gardener my mother is. (She still has an amazing little garden at her LOL* apartment.)
I may not be a plant whisperer like my mom, but Brandywine has great space—a walled garden that has some pretty incredible soil.
Again, from Pinterest, but no source found.
We have yanked out many of the overgrown sections, and removed seven partially-dead boxwoods. We found six hydrangea varietals (10 bushes!), trillium, ferns, Indian Hawthorne, and approximately 250 daffodils. (There were also many half-dead roses, which I am allowing to die off because I don’t know anything about roses—they are high maintenance—and I prefer easy. Like my men.)
If this winter ever ends—and I am afraid it won’t—I will make plans to rebuild our garden gate.
Until then, I will lay on the couch, bundled under the covers, and continue to pin.
