Melt down in my neck of the woods brings Canadian Geese and Ducks for a short swim. With visitors like these… I’m happy to see flooding in the BGgarden.
Cineraria Senecio (Pericallis) x hybroida that are perfect for this part sun area only after all danger of frost as passed my zone 5 garden. Yes I really did ‘plant’ these out in my partial shade garden around the bird bath this snowing 39*f day in March. HOWEVER, this is not a recommend planting for […]
Before heading up to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle on Sunday we were sure to make a quick detour over to the Neighborhood Farmers Market over on the west side of town.

I’m lost for words when it comes to sharing thoughts on succulents. My love for this plant began in my small in town yard that I turned into a garden filled with many succulents. As the years pass I’ve been overwhelmed with all the different types of succulents there are
A few of my favorite things at the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show 2010 I’ve been super busy working on #gardenchat details for this spring, trip to Seattle next week and a few new writing gigs that this winter is just flying by. When I contacted the Weirick Group who heads up the Central […]
Best of Show Netherland Dwarf Ever have those days when you have a ‘billion’ things to do and when you finally sit down to start working on the project you have a ‘brain fart’ and you just can’t think? I’ve had just that kind of a week! Yesterday one of my chores included spending time […]
