Pumpkins and Plaid Alfresco Fall Table

I’m lakeside with plaid and pumpkins, for an alfresco fall table! I’m mad about plaid no matter what the season and I found this plaid metal bucket recently, to complement a set of fall plaid plates. I filled the plaid container with dried Limelight Hydrangeas for an easy centerpiece for the table. Harvest Blessing Pumpkin…

Potting Shed: Chalking it Up to Fall and Garden Blooms

 Fall is my favorite season and I’ve been counting down the days anticipating its arrival. I’m so glad it’s finally here!

Easy DIY Fall Harvest Arrangement

Fall is my favorite season and I’ve been counting down the days since July!

At the Table: Summer into Fall and Limelight Hydrangeas

Fall arrives this Friday by the calendar, but Mother Nature is reminding us that summer is still here weather-wise in North Carolina, with highs in the mid to upper 80s and a jump in the humidity.

Red Fish, Blue Fish Lakeside Table

I’m at the table with a little summer fish fun, fitting for a Friday! It seems like it’s been ages since I was able to set a table by the lake, between a very wet May and June, followed by the extreme heat of July. We had a brief reprieve in the heat and I…

In the Potting Shed: Blue, White and Limelights Table and Vignette

Happy Monday, Did you have a good weekend? Mine was good but hot! I spent some time puttering around the Potting Shed, trying to keep everything watered and from wilting in our 90+ degree temperatures. I’m trying to stay cool and usually dashing back inside by noon to avoid the afternoon heat. Our Limelight Hydrangeas…

“Growing” Flowers and Summer Blooms Around The Potting Shed

Happy Monday, I hope you had a good weekend! We enjoyed a Red, White, and Blue Ridge Getaway for the 4th of July holiday, and now I’m playing catch up in ‘the garden of weedin’. In addition to the weeds growing, the Limelight hydrangeas burst into bloom while we were away. I have 5 Limelight hydrangeas planted…
