Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage by the Sea. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a cup of tea. …♡
There have been many “Springtimes” since then. Many happy new BeGiNnInGs and a few bittersweet EnDiNgS. I do love the Springtime. It reminds me that we can always BeGiN again. And when we begin again… there’s “HoPe”.
In the garden, it’s exciting to watch, and see things coming up again.
Plants that you’ve had for many years. It’s like seeing an old friend.♡
These are my poinsettias from December. They are still flowering….♡ Isn’t that extra-ordinary!
In the summer I plant Hollyhocks, Foxgloves, and then Delphinium. ♡
We have felt Springtime here in Southern California for quite a while, and so every possible hour has been spent in the garden. It gives me such satisfaction…. I’m always finding SoMeThInG to do.♡
I’ve had a clear vision for how I thought the garden should look. At the nursery they say, “Can we help you?” “No!” (Grin) I know just what I want – or don’t want. It takes lots of work, and patience to create. ..♡ Psssst…Can I tell you a secret♡ some people call this a Cottage garden, but really it’s just a good MeSsY GaRdEn. It’s not like painting— I just stick the plants in. I love large quantities of BlOoMs all jumbled together. Guess what? I have a GaRdEn piggy bank….and when it’s filled, I spend it ALL on a variety of flowers…. I enjoy creating a SpLaSh.♡
