colorful garden hoses 1 & 2 | 3 & 4 | 5 & 6

one of my favorite ways to make our home cheery is by looking for alternatives to everyday boring items… like garden hoses! why have a drab ‘ol green garden hose like everyone on the block when you could brighten up your lawn with one of these beauties? my favorite is this robin egg blue one, i think using it would make me feel all martha stewart-y and turn watering the garden into an exciting even which would in turn surely make my plants grow more abundantly (right?). i think so.

unconventional greenhouses and beautiful gardens galore are what you’ll find in jeremy miranda’s shop and on his website and blog. the way he lights these warm-summery-night-greenhouses up from the inside, seem to deeply draw me in to each of his paintings. with warm muted colors and striking emeralds and olive tones, i long to visit such peaceful planthouse.

wearable planters

wearable planters

since i come from a family of avid bicyclists (minus myself), this cutie pie bike planter was a insta-love! plus i love succulents, mostly because i can’t kill them (see here, here and here!). even if you don’t have a bike, i’m thinking the sturdy elastic nylon cord would allow you to attach it just about anywhere that it will fit around. just think of all the possibilities to show off your love for plants! sidenote: i’m also obsessing over these planter earrings.

well i’m not sure about everything, but these two things sure do make me happy. because of our moving, i haven’t been gardening as much as i like this year, but my fingers still yearn to be in the dirt. i have a little plot planned out and i’m ready to get started on a little veggie garden any time now. how is you garden growing?

around the yard

to say i’m still in shock of the natural terrain here is an understatement. it seems that every time i go out into the yard i see a rose that was just created to be put in a vase and enjoyed over dinner! since i just came in with some fresh ones, i thought i would share them with you. i hope they brighten your day as they have mine!

wine box salad garden

May 19, 2011

Posted by in gardening

i stumbled across the diy for this wine box salad garden yesterday (via llh designs, found on the style files) and fell in love- what a brilliant idea! i’m a big believer in square foot gardening as it is, so using pre-made wooden boxes just makes the whole thing easier from the start. and the fact that they are wine boxes covered in french just makes them all the more lovely. i wonder where linsey got these from? were they free? maybe she’ll pop over and let us know!

just think, no weeds, fresh greens (or any veggie for that matter), and a small place to tend to. sounds like the perfect garden to me! visit llh designs for the full how to and happy gardening!

plotting planters

May 12, 2011

repotting plants

hi friends! this week, i’ve been busy re-potting some of my plants. getting some green going on in our new place was just about first on the list of importance. some of these are old while others are newly found, and almost all of the planters have been found or thrifted for.

a little bit of a green house is what i ended up with! it’s one of my favorite places in the house. most of the new plants i’ve accumulated are succulents. i love them, becuase they come in so many varieties and are so easy to care for. just water twice a month and you should be good to go- now that’s my kind of plant! here are some succulent inspired planters that i’ve enjoyed finding for you:
