I want a three season hedge along my vegetable garden (to separate me from the intrusive neighbors). I’ve thought for years that I want a hedge in there, because it would make it feel a little more private, but I loved my neighbor Marie who used to live there, so the hedge was just an some day dream.  Now I’m thinking someday dream ought to get started sooner. Or I should go ahead and buy my farm. 

Here’s what I want in my hedge:

Wouldn’t that be awesome? Forsythia in early spring. Lilac in late spring. Rose of sharon in the summer. And burning bush for fall. And it would make my garden a little hidden haven… come on, let a girl dream.

  1. Awesome!!! If you're interested in a bit of winter color, rhododendrons and dogwoods are nice (the first is an evergreen, but not a “pine needle” type, and the second has red twigs in the winter months).
