EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT OUR YARD + GARDEN / THE LOVELY COTTAGE

Outdoor + Garden

When it comes to sharing our home with you, we get just as many questions about our yard + garden as we do the interior.  Maybe more, this time of year!  Between our front porch, grass, back deck + patio, climbing vines, flower beds, swing and chicken coop – we have an endless amount of plants and blooms that we love throughout our yard.  We’ve been consistent in a lot of ways and a few of our favorites are repeated throughout the front and back, but in order for you to have a one-stop-shop you can refer back to, I wanted to break it down for you the easiest way I can!
