When I first planted this bulb as we rang in the new year I was a little nervous at how long it was taking to show signs of life. After about three weeks it started to sprout some green. I had fun sharing this on my Instagram early in January. Shares From Instagram After the […]
The storm prediction came pretty quick but the snow system stalled over the Midwest this weekend. The snow started late Saturday and is still falling steady 24 hours later. I’ve been clearing the sidewalks to the mud room, front porch and sun room on and off all day. Just before sunset I took a walk […]
We have a chance of 10 new inches of snow on the way according to local weather forecast . I guess the farmers were right when I over heard them at the local gas station yesterday when they said ‘winter is just beginning’. The first thing I did when I got home was check the […]
Throwback Thursdays are quickly becoming my favorite day to blog over the winter months when I can’t be out in my garden. I love looking back at my garden from years past to find that I really wasn’t that ‘bad’ of a gardener. Today I’m going to share the deck my husband build to perfection and the landscape I kind of threw together.
Amy shares with me some houseplant growing tips and her excitement over her new eBook : Winter Houseplant Care … Podcast here!
WOW…. in the garden center but I wasn’t sure where I would plant it so I took a photo of it with my cell phone. Of course as the season grew on I forget the name of this fantastic doubling bloom. NEVER FEAR … we have a community of amazing gardeners who share and connect […]

14 years ago my first garden was starting to come together … Throw Back Thursday
It’s Monday … when I turned on my PC and started my Pandora playlist for background music as I worked the first song was Manic Monday. This weekend was our first hard frost in Ohio and I lost a few pretties outside but everything I wanted to save for next year or grow over the […]
Today was going to be a Throwback Thursday featuring my first garden and the lessons I learned growing under a walnut tree way back when. When I went to find the image I remembered sharing on TwitPics years ago the sight read : PANIC!!!! I didn’t save most of my images from when I first […]
The season is passing by so fast this year … leaves are falling and the garden seems to be holding on. Today I want to share with you some of my favorite shrubs and perennials in a short video. Thank you for visiting my garden today – Happy Autumn Support my Friends Carol and Kerrie […]
This just maybe my last walk and share from my front rose garden to capture the blooms for 2014. After being cheated out of a spring filled with new rose blooms I’m not going to complain about the abundance of blooms this late in the season. It’s killing me not being able to cut them […]
Have you ever looked back at images from your garden and laughed about something you had planted together? As I grabbed a DVD filled with images from gardening past for ‘Throwback Thursday’ shares today I was shocked to see I actually did a display AND took photos of it on my porch with greenhouse growing pots. […]

There are hundreds of blooms that are about 8″x 5″ full flowers that can be cut and brought indoors. This Limelight Hydrangea was […]
