The sprawling front garden begins on the edge of the driveway and continues across the front of the house right down to the edge of the fence near the stop sign. I have no idea how large this garden is, but it is rather large. It is one of my favorite gardens because it is in full sun, very fragrant and in easy view of the house. I’ve tried a lot of different plants in this area – some thrive and some do not. Roses seem to like it and do quite well, thus there are numerous roses in all colors and sizes. I like fragrant roses and tend to pick the old-fashion varieties, so spring really is the best time to see the roses. Other spring blooming favorites in this area include clematis, poppy, dames rocket, iris, peonies, valerian and columbine. I have a purple melic grass from Kew Gardens in this area that blooms (and multiplies) every spring. There is catchfly, catmint, love-in-a-mist, daylilies, Sweet William, allium ninebark, lilies and so many more plants. You almost have to walk through this garden on a daily basis to see everything.
