Looking Forward To Gardens


Because it's cold and wintry, my thoughts drift to weeks down the road. To gardens. 

So I went to my Pinterest boards for inspiration.

  1. I'm so excited too! I was just looking out at the snow thinking that in a month I'll be planting. :)

    1. I'm looking out at the snow hoping my white tulips in pots under the seemingly constant snowfall will make it.

    I was out working in the garden before breakfast this morning. I need to get things planted for color.

    1. I am so jealous of you being able to work in the garden. Wish I was your neighbor.

    1. I've found that container gardens are really great. No weeds. No having to stoop down to the ground to pull them.

  19. Oh wow! I love that last one. The trough turned into a pond is beautiful and rustic. My favorite combo.

  20. I love these beautiful gardens! Lots of great ideas here.

  21. I want SPRING, I want SPRING. Seriously, i cant take it anymore, me who loves winter is sick of the cold and snow. It's suppose to warm up to high 40"s in next few days, yippee. I wonder how long it takes for over 1 foot of snow to melt? I want to be in my gardens, sitting across from the pond, watching and listening to the waterfall. Question, in your galvanized container garden, do you poke holes in the bottoms?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can I also ask how you are the only blogger I don't have to click on "I'm not a robot". If so could you do a post letting everyone know how to get rid of it....so sick of doing that. I AM NOT A ROBOT!

  23. Oh, my...these are so beautiful...that 2nd one takes my breath away. I'm not a gardener but YOU are and your patio is going to be full of lush plants and flowers and whimsey....

  24. These are a sight for sore eyes! I love them all, but the water illusion is my fave.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So pretty and inspirational. I wonder how that water illusion was done? So creative and interesting.

    I doubt we can do much planting till, well, maybe 2018. Way too much snow and it won't be melting anytime soon. Today is about 5 degrees.

  26. So very tired of the winter weather. I think as we get older it is harder to deal with all of it. I don't remember even thinking about the weather when I was (much) younger, and I have always lived in No. Illinois/ So. Wisconsin. The flowers and pots in this post are beautiful. I can not WAIT to get some great dirt under my nails. Love the scent of spring gardens as we begin digging in them ~which is obviously a couple of months away for us yet. I always try to plant at least one pot of something by Mother's Day,,, even if I have to bring it in at night for a while. Spring will come. I am a believer!!

  27. Wonderful photos. Love the frog wearing the crown in #6. We managed to break our concrete frog when we moved, so, I will be on the lookout for a new frog. And I'm on the lookout for warm weather!

  28. Hi Brenda, I have been thinking about your kitchen counter top. Maybe peel and stick floor tile. Cuts with scissors, easy and durable.

  29. Pretty gardens...I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love all of them, but I think I like the kitchen herb garden the best. I long for fresh herbs from my garden again!!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  31. Thanks for a great post! I read this last night and fell asleep thinking about it and somewhere along the way I got really inspired with the container water garden.
