Book cases in the garden? Why not. Just put the books in Perspex boxes. ❤ I adore this garden wall at the @citizenm hotel in NYC. So charming and chic. Perfect, even in the rain. From books and shelves to colorful sculpture I'm finding so many ideas in this garden. What detail do you notice? Is it inspiring to you too?
The tulips in NYC's Central Park are at their peak. I wonder if they plant these fresh every fall or if they are spring planted (forced)? Or (I'd be shocked) if they were here year in and year out. I couldn't tell. Only clue was that I know it's hard to find this many unique forced bulbs of a unique variety (these are a gorgeous pink color with a frill edge). They were so solid and dense...spring is lovely here!
Last year my yellow hedge didn't bloom (late frost I think)... but this year it literally erupted in a matter of a few hours. I love forsythia and the speed of spring. Only problem is I can't keep up with getting the cleaning and clearing done!! How is your spring?
Latergram of the camellia down in GA that reminded me of ice cream... a flavor whose name I can't remember... But the flower is camellia .... variety is 'Tudor Baby Variegated'. Is it weird that flowers remind me of food?
Now I'm thinking maybe it wasn't ice cream, but gelato....probably with cherries...
What on earth am sorry looking at? Two of these have sprung up in my garden. They have a snowball like head with very soft flowers, light green leaves and a thick stalk. Plus they are easy 8in tall when my daffodils are barely half that. I am totally stumped... doesn't look like a weed, but I don't remember planting them. Ideas?
A Mediterranean garden in Savannah looking so great. Now I want to paint my shed orange. Utterly exhausted from my travels with @troybilt. We built a kids garden today... I'm gonna pay for this first-day-all-out effort tomorrow. (Why can't I find an aching back emoji?)
Toto, we are not in New England anymore! You might guess I'm in the palmetto state, but I'm actually in Savannah, GA. Traveling with @troybilt and looking forward to installing a children's garden at the Savannah botanic garden tomorrow. This is the lovely Palmetto collection at the Coastal GA Botanic Garden. It is positively spring here and it just seems so exotic to my winter weary New England eyes.
I'm Halfway thankful for the impending snow storm. Wait did I say that? But nothing like a snowy weekend to get the website finished and ready for issue no6 to go live starting next week. Fingers crossed it all comes together by Sunday night... Until then... a sneak peak at the cover that features Amber Locke's artwork. ( @rawveganblonde )
I went to the nursery... not even the pansies were ready. Getting impatient. So I bought some other things... I've got an idea for a clever container garden... this is a sneak peak... So thankful for succulents...
