Thank you Karen, for posting this. I loved seeing the "before and after" pictures. You have done a great job making that bare spot into an oasis.

Karen,
I didn't really take time within your article to tell you that yours is one of the most well organized gardens I've seen. And it was calming to me. I know that's sort of an unusual word for a garden, but the way you put things together is just calming, very soothing to see. I can only imagine how it is in real life.

Maybe it's your front porch and the curve of the bed design, I don't know, but I really enjoyed putting your tour together.
Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

When I first saw Karen's avitar, I was very impressed, and wondered what she had done with the rest of her yard. And now I know! It is wonderful!

Thanks for sharing your colorful artwork with us, Karen, and thank you Sharon for presenting it here on ATP.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I'm glad that this came up again, because I am new and missed it the first time around. What a wonderful job you've done!! You started with nothing and have a beautiful, and very calming yard full of gorgeous color. Your neighbors must really enjoy seeing. Great job!
