Wispy, Wild, Wonderful Grasses

Traveling is an amazing way to experience many different ways to plant, plants to use, and new ideas. Reading (for those who can’t travel) is another way to be inspired. I love to read books about gardening but I also love to read magazines. One of the...

Cucamelon Harvest and Recipes

Wandering through the vegetable garden sometimes make me anxious.  There is always so much to do and remember.  Prune the tomatoes, check the tomatoes to see if they are ripe, pick the ripe tomatoes, find something to do with the excess tomatoes, find...

Hydrangea Drama Continues

In my last post, I decided (while writing it) that maybe hydrangeas were not so ‘ho hum’. In fact, I came up with so many that it should really be split into two posts so, as promised, here is the ‘rest of the story’ starting with my collection from...

Often, I find myself loving a plant that is hard to find. I also really want to put unusual garden worthy plants into the designs I do. I started last year to grow some of the things I love to use in my own greenhouse. While I may not be an experienced grower, I can...

Mother’s Day Garden

Not to be outdone by the Easter Garden the grand-kids in Illinois (zone 6a) planted a garden with their mom for Mother’s Day.  Let’s join Kristen for a quick tour… We started prepping our garden back at the end of April.  If we wanted to we could call our little...
