I would call it a garden bed but my husband calls it a parterre and has been planning to put one in the backyard for quite some time and after much contemplation he finally decided what he was going to do.
The area where the parterre was to go was a “nothing area’ beneath the clothesline.
The finished parterre is much nicer and hopefully we will get the benefit of some useful herbs.
The herbs planted were; chives, sage, lime balm, thyme, rosemary, pennyroyal and memory herb. At the very front are two cucumber plants to trail over the edge of the parterre. A sunny photo and a cloudy one. Not much grass around as a result of the very hot weather this summer. It will green up over the winter.
