Spring Garden Inspiration

It’s here!! First comes a little warm weather and then the “I want, I want, and I want” design inspiration ideas for the 2013 Promise Gardens. HGTV Gardens has the scoop on garden benches. Where would I put another bench you ask? In gardening, there is always another spot to fill!

p.s. Remember? These were my colors last year…are the behind? 8o))

Hyacinth & Me

….oh the perfume…oh the color…

I love hyacinth especially for the wonderful perfume they emit so every year I plant them, this year many of them in pots all over my porch.  They so captivated me that I brought a few indoors (oh so much better than oils) for room fragrance.  After I watered the pot, the droplets stood out so starkly, I grabbed my camera and took a few quick shots.  I love the color but then, I love all color, but purple and red had me at first look.  Enjoy and take time to smell the hyacinth and bring them indoors for beautiful room perfume.

Tornados, Thunderstorms, High Winds and Rain and then beautiful pastel skies.  From the Promise Garden window, a view of pastel beauty after the storm.  The colors are magnificent and magnify the greens of spring…wish you were here!
