Gardens are out of Control
I have another garden that is fenced with beautiful wrought iron, created and built by my wonderful husband. It has a lovely swinging gate and an archway to enter the garden. I remember on Mothers Day about ten years ago our girls and I went to get quickcrete so that I could make a "stone" pathway through this garden. I mixed the quickcrete with water in the wheel barrow, then proceeded to fill a mold with the mixture. It set up quickly enough that I could remove the mold, turn it a quarter turn and do the next section.
By the end of Mothers Day I was happy and exhausted! Today you can hardly walk this pathway because of all the plants (some are actually flowers) that have filled the garden. I like plants that self seed, the garden is mostly purple cone flowers. Lily's , Peonies, Iris, coral bells, wild violets, hostas and weeds now claim the rest of the space. I have lost control.......... I think I need a gardener.
