Cottage gardens

A cottage garden is relaxed, and usually takes a meandering path to a destination.  But like each gardener, each garden is different.  The thing that puts cottage gardens into a different category is that they are always changing with the seasons, both in color and texture, but are also a mix of flowers, veggies, herbs and shrubs.

I am an avid gardener, but this is my personal favorite type of garden. Nothing looks like a mistake, and a few weeds just blend in!    Great for someone with a sense of adventure and a casual life…
