My Little Garden Space

Being from Arizona where there is not much more than sand and cactus, it's been a real challenge for me to figure out how to get anything to grow. Most of my previous attempts have led to disaster, up until this year I couldn't get anything to thrive more than a couple weeks. And when you are a Witch growing things should come naturally.

This year with ALOT of help from my Sexy man, I have been able to not only plant but have so far been able to enjoy my "Little Garden Space":

Delphiniums in the bed in front of the porch 
Hydrangeas...there are two of these cuz they are probably my most favorite flower!
 Gardenias in the side yard bed

Violets in front of the gardenia bush
 Asparagus fern on the porch
 I'm not sure what's in this planter other than a Spider Plant. It's hanging on the porch too

This is my herb garden There's Sage, Lemon Balm, Mint, Rosemary, Sweet Basil, Lemon Thyme, Lavender and Thyme. I am thoroughly enjoying being able to cook with fresh herbs.
 The swing is in front of my side garden where the violets and gardenia are planted. There's also a couple azaleas, a dogwood tree, a small oak and some random flowers that just popped up!

My FAVORITE place to be! I sit here in the morning enjoying my coffee and listening to the birds. 
Such a peaceful and enjoyable space...

It says "Count Your Blessings" and I DO each and every day!
