Thank you for all your visits, comments, shares and Pins in 2017. I’m so honored you find the time to visit my little blog and Potting Shed!
I’m bringing you a little flower therapy on a January day!
Here’s look back at how I potted, puttered, played around the Potting Shed in 2017, with highlights from the months, seasons and holidays. Click on the links if you’d like to revisit the complete post for details and sources.

“Putting the ‘she’ in a gardening shed means adding a little something extra— a comfortable place to sit, a few decorative touches, or maybe collections to celebrate the art of gardening.” ~ Erika Kotite, She Sheds: A Room of Your Own
