A poem by J.F. Conant

He who loves an old house never loves in vain. How can an old house used to sun and rain, to lilac and to larkspur and an elm above-ever fail to answer the heart that gives it love?

I want to plant flowers; lots of flowers next year. I want a cutting garden to be proud off. Here are a few I am considering:
 Oriental Poppies
chinese lanternsglads

What a beautiful garden it would be. I have or have had each of these, and love all but the lanterns. Glads are a bit of work to keep them nice as they need to be staked....keep dreaming its going to be a looooong winter before you can "get your garden on". Will be deaming with ya hun.

Our neighbors have a huge display of oriental poppies and I am very envious of them. That is what I would suggest you go with. How will you ever decide?

Do you have favorite colors in mind? Remember how Tasha Tudor liked only specific shades?

I love each of the flowers you've selected and you have lots of room to plant them.

I love both cannas and gladiolas, but can never motivate myself to dig the bulbs.

Can you imagine a field of pink poppies and daisies? That's my dream!

I'm sooooo looking forward to seeing many pictures of your beautiful flowers next year.
