Quilt Raised Bed

I am a quilter and a saver.  When I thought about a theme for my garden, I realized it was a patchwork of things I saved, things I liked and things others gave me.  I wanted a raised flower bed that reflected a patchwork quilt.  It is filled with shade loving annuals. 


To the right of the quilt bed is a large native Mountain Laurel which is original to the property.  There are several hydrangeas and other shade loving plants nearby.
