🐌🌳🐌 Spring continues to crawl its way to my garden. Actually, I shouldn’t complain. I generally like it to unfold, rather than explode. That said, I wish I would start seeing more golden feverfew and foxglove seedlings than I am. In this image from a previous year, the feverfew, the golden tuff you see in the lower right hand corner, was already much further along. I need this supporting cast as background singers to those diva tulips! 🎶🎵🎶 . . . #gardentherapy #lindavater #gardeninspiration #landscapedesign #gardensofinstagram #tuin #gardenlove #gardenart #gardenlife #trädgård #landscapearchitecture #horticulture #gardener #gardens #instagarden #jardin #garden_styles #landscaping #garten #gardening #mygarden #garden #pansies #gardeninspiration #gardendesign #jardim #violas #springgarden #gardengoals #gardeningtips at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

🦋🌳🦋 What are your favorite two colors to use together in the garden? Hands down this is mine. Blue/purple + pale yellow (perhaps chartreuse?). I am just a few days away from the front window box looking this full again. This year though, the @colorblends hyacinths have been replaced by @colorblends tulips. I show the progress of it in an IGTV video yesterday. When its at its peak, I will make sure to share again. 💙 My thoughts go out to anyone caught in the terrible hail storm here in Oklahoma City yesterday. Thankfully, my home and garden escaped… But I know many of you were not so fortunate. 🙏🙏🙏 your way. . . . . #windowbox #lindavater #gardeninspiration #landscapedesign #gardensofinstagram #tuin #gardenlove #gardenart #gardenlife #trädgård #topiary #landscapearchitecture #horticulture #gardener #gardens #instagarden #jardin #garden_styles #landscaping #garten #gardening #mygarden #garden #gardeninspiration #gardendesign #jardim #pansies #ガーデニング #frontporch #blueandyellow at Central Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Linda provides an idea of what projects she’s undertaking on her front porch, the stages her containers are in and some tips on bulbs, topiary and other beautiful spring bloomers.

🧚‍♂️🌳🧚‍♂️ Tell me...do you agree with this? In the next installment of my homage to my past arbor, I give you this high summer morning pic. It’s all about the light. It’s all about the light. It’s all about the light.

💗🌳💗 My question for today: have you lost a prized rose(s) to rose rosette? Here’s another perspective of the arbor I am replacing when it is flush with the blooms of a Climbing Old Blush rose and a Zepherine Drouhin, the slightly darker pink one growing over the arch. (Head to my IGTV to see what the space looks like now that it’s down.) Sadly the Zepherine succumbed to rose rosette, but the other rose is so vigorous that Z’s demise is not obvious...though I will miss its fragrance. I have a fun climbing addition I’ll be telling you about after the fence is back up. Stay tuned. For my #fridayfollow recommendation, follow @reddirtramblings. Dee is our local expert on rose rosette and a brilliant gardener. Not to mention a lovely friend☺️. Happy Friday all! . . . . #gardenideas #gardendecor #gardengoals #lindavater #gardensofinstagram #climbingroses #pinkflowers #gardendesigner #gardeninspiration #garten #tuin #gardengate #boxwood #gardeners #garden_styles #weekendwithtextures #gardenlover #gardeninglife #gardeningisfun #instagardenlovers #flowerstyle #pinkroses #cottagegarden #englishstyle #englishgarden #jardim #gartenliebe #springhassprung at Central Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

The old arbor and short fence have come down; now the posts have been set and I await the new entry to frame the view of the pussy willow and the potager.

💕🌳💕 What in your garden, no matter the season or weather you are experiencing, is stressing you out right now. Because make no mistake about it, no matter how much we love gardening, it is stressful sometimes. Actually in some ways, it’s stressful all of the time. On my stress list right now?…because we gardeners always make lists…✔️☺️✔️... A) Will I like my new potager entry as much as I loved the one we just took down? It framed the view perfectly. B) Where are all the seedlings I normally see appear about now? Poppies and feverfew and dill? 😬 C) why isn’t that sprinkler zone coming on? ...and on and on. It ain’t all butterflies 🦋 and 🌹 roses out here in the garden, you know. Am I right?😂🤣😂 . . . #gardenideas #gardendecor #gardengoals #lindavater #gardensofinstagram #climbingroses #pinkflowers #gardendesigner #gardeninspiration #garten #tuin #gardengate #boxwood #gardeners #garden_styles #weekendwithtextures #gardenlover #gardeninglife #gardeningisfun #instagardenlovers #flowerstyle #pinkroses #cottagegarden #englishstyle #englishgarden #jardim #gartenliebe #allium #arbor at Central Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

🌳👋🌳 Good-bye winter and HELLO spring! What’s going on in your neck of the woods? I for one am more than ready to trick out this blank, gray canvas of a back yard with color and topiary and string lights and garden ambiance to the max. The arbor in the back is down, and the potager is awaiting a new entrance. Let the pruning and planting and garden pampering begin! 👏👏👏 . . . #gardenideas #gardendecor #gardengoals #lindavater #gardensofinstagram #gardendesigner #gardenbench #gardendesigner #gardeninspiration #garten #tuin #topiary #boxwood #gardeners #garden_styles #weekendwithtextures #gardenlover #gardeninglife #gardeningisfun #instagardenlovers #romanticgarden #ivy #cottagegarden #englishstyle #englishgarden #jardim #gartenliebe #springhassprung #gardeners at Central Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

🐝🌳🐝 How much time do you need to spend gardening for it to be therapeutic, the tonic for what ails you? A day? A couple hours? Thirty minutes? I was suffering from a serious bout of computeritis today; not fatal, but serious enough to warrant two ibuprofen taken with two hours of porch planting and puttering. Finally, an image here in real time, after giving all the urns, topiary, window box and porch accouterments a good tidying up. The computer 😈 is still taunting me, but I’m invigorated enough to wrestle with it. High touch wins out over high tech👊. . . . #gardentherapy #lindavater #gardeninspiration #windowbox #flowerstagram #tuin #gardenlove #gardenart #gardenlife #trädgård #hurryupspring #horticulture #gardener #gardens #instagarden #jardin #garden_styles #topiary #garten #gardening #mygarden #garden #gardeninspiration #gardendesign #jardim #hyggehome #hyggelife #springseason #frontporch #frontporchdecor at Central Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

😬🌳😬 I’m hiding out this morning. I always hide out when my buddy John and his talented crew come to prune my mammoth oak tree in front. (I am a whimp; do you ever behave this way?) I’m going to install some landscape lighting, something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. But first this nail-biting tree clean up must be done. Better before the tulips and spring show begin than after, am I right? Now, I must go stick my head in the sand. ................................. 🙏🙏🙏😞😞😞🙏🙏🙏 for all of you in Utrecht and throughout the country.

🌸🌳🌸 What is your favorite season to capture images of your own garden? One of the things that so pleased me about the @victoriamagazine shoot was its timing and the season it captured. The spring show with all the tulips and vibrant color has received the lion’s share of publishing attention. This shoot captured a quieter phase in the seasons, one with less bravado, more restraint, and more romance...a trademark of @victoriamagazine. And romance without too much saccharine, if you know what I mean :). . . . #gardenideas #gardendecor #gardengoals #lindavater #gardensofinstagram #gardendesigner #gardenbench #gardendesigner #gardeninspiration #garten #tuin #topiary #boxwood #gardeners #garden_styles #weekendwithtextures #gardenlover #gardeninglife #gardeningisfun #instagardenlovers #romanticgarden #foxglove #cottagegarden #englishstyle #englishgarden #jardim #gartenliebe #romanticgarden #victoriamagazine at Crown Hts. - Edgemere Hts., Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
