My parents, siblings and I bought a cottage last year. It hadn't been used in years and we bought it contents included. It was gross but we worked on the inside last summer and got it in pretty good shape. This year we concentrate on the gardens! the previous owner had beautiful gardens but they have been ignored for so many years they are in terrible shape. I went up today to try and thin some stuff out so it will be able to bloom this year. I came back with tons of goodies. Rhodies, azaleas, day lilies, bulbs and more...I got some pictures of some simple stuff that was bursting in color..I'll try and get links tonight.
