C’s are better than A’s for my flower garden

Last winter, when I started thinking about turning the area beneath my clothesline into a flower garden, I had high hopes. But I also was a bit uncertain as to whether I could pull it off. I was excited to pick out and order the perennials, but in the days after I planted the bulbs, the nervousness returned. Almost all of them looked like they were in a deep sleep from which they might never awake. Fortunately, words of encouragement from my sister helped me chill out, and whaddya know, they seem to have made a comeback. In fact, most are doing quite well. I’m not sure I’ll have actual flowers this summer, but there is a lot of green and that keeps me thinking positively.

My “vision” for the flower garden also included incorporating the clothesline poles into the design. I mean, why leave the poles in the ground if they were just going to stand there looking out of place, all rusty and abandoned?
