Your house is adorable and the flowers look great!
OMG, it is a cottage, so cute! I love it! the new flowers look incredible. We used to have a lot of shade in the backyard of our fist house (if shade is your problem) We found that impatients really thrived in the shade. That was just about the only flower that we could grow. I think hydrangas do really well too. Not sure if I spelled that right???
