Lavender Infused Sugar

Lavender Infused Sugar

I started with one tiny lavender plant years ago that has spread into a tiny garden of sorts. Nothing like the beautiful fields of Provence, but my own little pièce de résistance. Until last year, I had only enjoyed the heavenly aroma and beautiful color of these tiny blossoms. Then, I baked lavender shortbread cookies […]

Weathered Bench Container Garden

A couple summers ago, I discovered two weathered benches in an old shed at my parents’ farm that I decided to bring home with me. I managed to paint the larger one a bright yellow color for the Outdoor Extravaganza last year, and it eventually made its way to our front porch. The other smaller sized […]

Outdoor Extravaganza Plants & Flowers (2014)

Welcome to the 3rd annual Outdoor Extravaganza! This time, I decided to change things up a bit and share a Garden Themed Hostess Gift for my project instead of a pot or planter. Such an easy and inexpensive, yet thoughtful way to say “thank you” to your party hostess this spring or summer. Now that you’ve […]

Easy Garden Themed Hostess Gift

With May Long Weekend  just around the corner, I thought it was a good time to put together a hostess gift for one of the outdoor parties we’ll be attending. After feeling cooped up inside for far too long, I’m praying the weather finally allows us to kick back outside and enjoy some much-needed sunshine! […]

Cold Tolerant Annuals For Early Spring Planting

Cold Tolerant Annuals

This has been a challenging spring for gardening to say the least. Will the snow ever stop? Usually by this time, my Lily of the Valley is peeking out of the ground. It is the flower for May after all. Not this year. Notta. Even it doesn’t want to come out to play! When I […]
