How to Create an Easy Cottage Garden

via BHG

I really love flower beds.  I like Lantana in my beds to draw butterflies.  We had a hard winter (by Texas standards).  I had to cut my plants back to the ground and even though they are producing many fine leaves, it will be a while before they bloom, so adding a little color would be fun.

I also planted a rose bush to one bed.  I haven't really had a rose bed, only inherited rose beds, but this new rose climber is doing fine so far.

I feel inspired to get a little dirty today

Here are a few Lantana pictures in case you don't grow them in your part of the country.
