Dreams of a Cutting Garden

Hi Shawn, I’m a fellow blogger from Tracy Porter’s site. Feel like I know you already. Love your blog, your farm is just gorgeous….

So, wow! Look at those raised beds! You are going to have a lovely cutting garden, indeed. Thought I’d share a suggestion that I grew last summer that I just loved (I’m a garden designer in Atlanta), “Love Lies Bleeding”. I know, the name is very Edgar Allen Poeish, but it’s really wonderful for arrangements! Lasts forever, dries wonderfully and adds a beautiful weeping, drapey romance to a bouquet Just a thought! Have a lovely weekend..
