Simple Solar Homesteading
I am in the process of turning one acre into a park garden. It will be cottage style with some dwarf trees. I will have veggy and fruit bushes mixed in with many perennial beds all woven together with pathways and hidden benches.

That will provide food and the sanctuary and beauty that I desire in my life!

I loved this, and all the gorgeous gardens. I have a interesting garden, but theres more I want to do, of course. I have a little pond/waterfall that I love, so does everyone who comes. Must addmitt my lavender plant or plants can't remember is the star of the show. Its so big and gorgeous. I love it, and all my plants.
