Spring is officially here in 3 days!
To celebrate the arrival of spring, let’s talk about ….. flowering vines!
Among the hundreds of gardens I have designed or visited, I will never forget those sweet moments of passing through a tunnel of glorious roses, or sitting under an arbor covered with fragrant jasmine blossoms…
With so many lovely flowering vines to choose from, we can all recreate these magical spaces in our own little garden. Let’s check out some of my favorite easy-to-grow flowering vines for year-round beauty!
