This Year's Garden Delight

Last Year's Garden Delight

Every year, something about my garden becomes my "delight" of the season.  Last year, it was this. . .

A succulent wreath I planted and hung on my garden gate.  (See original post here.)  This wreath got more and more lush and beautiful as the summer progressed.  It gave me Great Delight.

Last fall, I decided to try to "overwinter" the wreath so I could attempt to recreate its beauty this season. 

And.  How'd that go?

This is what it looked like when I brought it back out this spring.

I gave it a lot of water and as much sunshine as possible (which wasn't much there, for a while).

Gradually, the wreath showed signs of life.

I filled in with some new plants, continued to water, and left it sitting in the sun.

Here it is last weekend, just before I hung it on the garden gate for the season.

Not quite resurrected in last year's glory, but. . . we're getting there!

And what's THIS year's Garden Delight?  Stay tuned . . . and I'll tell you tomorrow!
