English cottage garden ~

english cottage garden borders - This is what I dream of! Fields of wild flowers as my yard :)

beautiful perennials

Poppies and Lupines - Papaver Lauren’s Grape and Lupinus perennis - a luscious burgundy, purple plum and lavender color combination!

Wooly thyme, among others, makes a perfectly behaved lawn alternative. Sweet smelling, drought tolerant and never needs mowing or fertilizing.  What could be better?  The feel of it on bare toes is a textural treat, and the look of a happy thyme lawn adds romance and an established feel to the xeric garden.  Plant some among pavers too.

Purple combination, irises, foxglove

[Wonderful combination of plants. I think I'm looking at foxglove, tall bearded iris, and purple violas. Looks like maybe lamb's ear in the bottom left corner--excellent color foil.] What a great looking garden

Front landscape bed; day lilies' salvia, sedum, mini shasta daisy, burning bush, dense yews. In front of rocks were pink phlox but the bunnies ate them:(
