Easy Rose and Coleus Topiary's, Garden 'Junque' Decor, Potting Shed Door Organizer, Yummy Asparagus Bread

Right now garage & rummage sales are around every bend along with estate sales!  I don't always have time to go to these because I am typically at market on Saturdays and by the time we are on the way home, the last thing I feel like doing is 'saleing'.  Thrift shopping is another story though... I know I will find just about whatever I want at the ones we drive past in the city on our way home.  But good garden junque is not so easy to find this way.  Antique shoppes, flea markets and sales are better shopping opportunity for this kind of stuff.  I love to add elements into my beds that give a feeling of invitation... cool old chairs, stools and benches say 'come on in for a stay!', tin pails and buckets add height and dimension in the flower beds; ladders and bird cages can be incorporated as well!  I love to get lost in my flower beds and just relax... weed, water and rest... gardening, what could anyone want more?  [Read More]
 
 

Window box Gardening, Easy Jewelry Magnets, Make Pillows with Old Shirts, Honey, Almond & Oats Granola and Yummy Spring Potato Salad!

Spring is such an exciting time of year... I love all the flowering trees and shrubs... in my opinion if it doesn't bloom at some point, why bother having it! Although I do admit the beautiful colors of Autumn in the fall with all the maples and other trees bursting forth in spectacular hues of orange, red, yellow and bronze is stunning as well... I welcome spring with open arms, dream for summer and long for fall...

Choosing Perennials, Lavender Heart Card, Easy Flavored Sugar's Gift and Yummy Apple Pie Oatmeal

Our gardens are filled with love, patience and long suffering... these are attributes that we as spouses, parents, co-workers and such strive to maintain and build in our personal character.  I believe that gardening helps us grow these virtues.  I always tell my my friends that God made me to love gardening because that was the only way He was sure to get these virtues instilled in me.   Perennials I believe help along with this much more than annuals.  My closer friends know how much I enjoy 'instant gratification'~ which is why I probably will always incorporate my beloved annuals... petunias, nasturtiums, pansies and the likes~ they are ever faithful!  Today we will look at perennials and the pro's and con's to them along with some tips & hints on maintenance.
