Let’s take a look at the garden, shall we?
Here’s what came before:
Note the Coke machine in the left corner, and the two car vacuums on the left side. Classy!
Post Coke machine, pre-renovation: early April.
The planter now in the Coke machine spot.
Tomatoes, lemon verbena, and masses of pansies. And pineapple sage!
Rosemary for the caramels in front of the door, next to a cigarette butt can I got all spray painty on and planted tomatoes into.
My green-thumbed pal Lauren helped me design and plant the garden by the Rail Trail, on the west side of the property. She’s pretty hardcore awesome.
Rail Trail garden: foxgloves, watermelon, borage!
The borage is much bigger now, and has gorgeous flowers.
I never knew about foxgloves before.
How insanely gorgeous they are.
In addition to the rail trail garden, the planter in the old Coke machine spot, and the rosemary and tomatoes by the door, we’ve got two more planters.
Remember those car vacuums?
We took them out. I know: you’re surprised. Who wouldn’t want a car vacuum at a chocolate shop? I know, I know.
We turned those spots into planters and planted tons of nasturtiums in them. They’re doing great. I eat one a day.
I never knew about fuchsias either, until Lauren persuaded me to get a hanging pot of them.
Heart-stoppingly lovely, I tell you.
More photos to come as the season progresses, my friends!
