A thrifted garden

The cabin garden has come a long way in just one short year!  In an effort to conserve cash ... a lot of the garden at the cabin came from our Seattle house.  There are divided plants, babies, propogated plants and even a few outright transplants.  At this point, I'd say 50% of what we've got in the ground at the cabin was FREE and previously planted.

We've had some fun trying new things out here.  Between the cabin and the garage there's a walkway and some slivers of garden.

One part of it is filled with washed stones from the property (that took about a half a day with a wheelbarrow, hose and scrub brush) ... the other with some cast off sedums from our Seattle rock garden.

The thrifted garden's not looking so bad after one short year ... guess there's one benefit to a cool and wet summer ...

There's still a lot of planting to go ... but we're happy with how it's looking so far ... a little bit natural, a little bit thrifted and a little bit of a blank canvas on which we are slowly painting. 

Hope you had a great weekend.
All the best


  1. Oooh, it's beautiful! And rather like a scrappy quilt, so much more creative than just going out and buying it all!
