January Dream

“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year; for gardening begins in January with a dream.” ~ Josephine Nuese

We shared this quote a while back on our Pinterest and Facebook but some how it escaped the blog. While January is behind us (thank goodness) we still have a ways to go in the Midwest before we see thawing and blooming. That doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream, right? What garden style do you dream of?

My dream style is one that mixes the deep South (think Charleston and Savannah) with the formality of English gardens. I love the idea of mixing the Massarelli’s  Carnelian Mountain finish Cento Urn with the pop of bright colors from azaleas and roses. I can almost hear the fountain flowing now.

Unfortunately, Spanish moss does not fair well with our deep freezes but I do love the evergreen look of Spanish Moss providing a romantic backdrop.

Of course my dream garden would not be complete without statuary. The Dancing Girl statue gives my dream garden the formality of the English Garden… despite her free spirit.

My grandmother use to line walkways of her garden with mint, rosemary, lavender and various other herbs. Her beautiful logic was that when one passed through it would create a fragrant journey.  I hope to do the same this year when the frost subsides.

I am also looking forward to the chirping of our winged friends. No perfect garden is complete without a birdbath and birdhouse.
