We would love to see your garden room(s)! Please share your photos and descriptions of what you created.

I have started a couple "garden rooms" in my backyard. This photo is of my outdoor patio room. We made the patio, installed the fence, made the arbor and installed it as well. DIY sure can save ya a lot of $$!

And then we added a room leading out from the arbor. This is my hummingbird, bee, and butterfly garden. Most of the plants are nectar and host plants for the flying critters.

And this is the view looking through the cattle panel arbor into the butterfly and hummer garden room. I want to add some seating in there next. :-)

Thanks, Gwen! Most all gardens look great with a white picket fence, don't you think? ;-)

Angele - My plant list is many, but most are butterfly and hummingbird plants. The 3-tiered bed has mostly daylilies in it now. Some of the plants include: Cape Honeysuckle, Caladiums, I. indica vine, Cross vine, Black and Blue Salvia, Water Lotus, Zinnias, Porterweed, Passionflower vines, roses, Morning Glory vines, Clematis, Flame bush, Shrimp Plant, Dahlias, Bacopa, Freesia, 4 O'Clocks, Jasmine bush, Cassia, Ditch Lilies, Crocosmia, and others I don't remember off hand. I grow everything because I never gardened before 2004, so I like to try everything! LOL! It's a modge podge of plants. Thanks for the nice compliment. I am sooo ready for Spring! Tired of this cold weather! *Blush*

That is a beautiful list! I wish I were a butterfly :)
I didn't start gardening till 2006 or even 07, I had some plants of course but no real flower beds. I thought I had a brown thumb & made a hobby out of learning all about wildflowers.

Dana - I love your adorable Miniature garden! And those roses ... WOW!!! And the Coneflower room! I bet you get lots of butterflies in that area! Smiling I love your entrance and arbor, too! It really looks lovely! Thanks for sharing all your photos! ;-)

So ... do you plan on expanding this year? Rolling my eyes.
