Tammy’s cottage garden of yesteryear

Part of the beauty of Tammy’s garden is like stumbling on a wee bit of rural England or maybe journeying back a century or two into simpler times. Another factor is how she captures the look with her camera. Look at these ancient looking vignettes containing  cottage garden plants like yarrow, coneflower, snapdragons, foxglove, lobelia and stock. Little birdhouses appear here and there.

Tammy’s ancient rusty wagon is filled with Mecardonia ‘Gold Dust’, Violet alyssum, and Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost.’  In this photo below, the clay pots just glow and the handles of the garden forks echo the handle of the wagon.

Against this weathered grey fence below, coneflowers and meadow sage hide a galvanized chicken feeder hung on a simple hook. Details in the background below are intriguing!  Thanks, Tammy!

  1. I think I could look at this again and again ( and I probably will!)….I like her style and the way everythig seems to “accent” each piece. I would love to sit in a chair near these gardens with a friend or two and have great conversation…

    Good ideas for an instant bottle tree. Now I have to collect wine bottles from my friends. And I think I might be able to land a boat or a kayak that is not usable anymore. Oh, the possibilities, my, my my!

    The old wagon vignette is so unique … what a wonderful idea adding those extra tool handles! Love the old washtub on the weathered bench …wonderful gardens, Tammy! TFS, Sue Langley!
