Spring Planting

Our freeze date guideline for planting spring & summer annuals is April 15th~ I’ve been ready for the bloom, enjoying violas that will tolerate  cold temperatures~ Patience is not my forte  so I’m getting a jump-start  in my seed box in my Potting Shed. Although not patient enough to plant from seed :) Wishing you Happy…

Sharing My Favorite Room

You can find me at  Savvy Southern Style today~ where I’m honored and thrilled to join Kim and her readers and share my favorite room! It should come as no great surprise that room is my Potting Shed. . . ‘Potting Shed’ is a misnomer since I putter and play more than pot  :) and feather my nest! Thank you Kim for inviting…

Chalking It Up~ April Showers

I’m welcoming April~ including her showers, and chalking up the door to my Potting Shed!  My Potting Shed doors were salvage finds for $12 each~ you can see the before version with the tape on the broken glass. Instead of replacing the glass in my back door, I decided to add a board and paint it with chalkboard paint. I wanted…

Hopping Up & Down the Bunny Trail

 The weather, meteorologically-speaking,  has been Hopping Up and Down the Bunny Trail ~ Unpredictable with some sunny days in the 60’s,  cold & rainy days in the 20’s & 30’s, followed by blustery days with wind advisories~  fortunately for us, no March snow. The plum trees are dressed in pink blooms and putting on  their annual show despite the cold…

This cedar tree, a casualty of a thunderstorm and high winds came down,  thankfully missing the house. Biding my time until spring, I…

For the Birds~ Repurposed Chandelier Feeder

I’ve been looking for bird feeders to hang near my Potting Shed. Inspired by a birdelier on Pinterest, original source here, I went to my local Habitat ReStore and found a chandelier to repurpose as a feeder. Originally polished brass, I found one for $8   I thought would work, despite a bent cup and broken arm…

Gardening Under Glass

Garden under glass with a terrarium for a fun winter DIY project to add a little green indoors. Easy and self-sustaining and best of all, no green thumb required! I consulted the almanac and decided that since Spring is still a couple of months away, February was the perfect month to Garden Under Glass!  An escape…

Winter Window Dressing

I’m biding my time until Spring when I can enjoy some blooms and fill pots with flowers~ My Potting Shed front porch looked cold and my window box looked empty, stripped of its magnolia, pine & gazing ball for Christmas. . . So I tucked in some cozy layers of landscaping burlap around pots of…
