last summer my husband and i bought a new house. it's a "low country coastal cottage" with a small front yard. from day one my plan has been to put up a white picket fence with an arbor over the walkway, and to replace the front yard with a cottage garden. all of the plants i've selected are pinks and purples, and as much as possible i've tried to go for flowers that have that disheveled, ruffled, look to them. they are the kinds of flowers that put me in mind of those eccentric old ladies from victorian literature, like miss havisham from great expectations.



1. wisteria trained on the arbor
2. canterbury bells (white rectangle is the mailbox)
3. cardinal de richelieu rose
4. apothecary's rose
5. sarah bernhardt peony
6. tall dutch iris
7. bela lugosi daylily
8. poppy anemone sylphide
9. blue wonder toad lily
10. monkshood
11. black knight butterfly bush
12. purple passion hydrangea
13. tower columbine
14. pink parasol clematis
15. sensation lilac
16. flowering almond
17. ranuculus pink
18. existing pecan tree (already on property)
