Other projects have taken precedence the past two summers, so this garden hasn't happened yet, but for Christmas Rog gave me the promise of helping me build the garden this spring. (He knows the way to my heart!)
With each fresh snowfall I have been taking the opportunity to tramp a garden layout in the snow. The raised beds will be contained by local Winona stone and there will be brick paver paths. Tracking it out in the snow gives me a pretty good sense of how it will look from inside the house. This square plan looks a bit too geometric to me, but would be softened considerably by my eclectic gardening style. I want to be able to expand the design in the future if I feel the need to plant more flowers!
