Window Dressing for the Potting Shed

I’ve been busy planting and adding a little window dressing to the Potting Shed! My hubby hung a pair of Happy Birthday Window Boxes for my Potting Shed about a month ago. The window side of my Potting Shed sat next the lake before her move and was inaccessible. I decided that side and was past due a face lift…

Stop and Smell the Peonies!

I’m taking time to stop and smell the peonies. . . Enjoying their lush blooms. . . And heady fragrance for the brief time they’re here. I cut some peonies to enjoy as Ball jar bouquets for my Potting Shed. I found this stamped spoon marker on Etsy. . .  “Love what you grow and what you…

A Welcome Snowball Effect

Snowballs in April are a good thing if you’re talking flowers! Our Chinese Snowball Viburnum is blooming, covered in fluffy white flowers. We planted our shrub about 3 years ago but this is the first year it’s been covered in welcome snowballs. The hydrangea-like blooms start out as green, changing over to cream and then white. It’s also ideal to…

Earth Laughs in Flowers and Flowers in a Seed Box

We’re expecting temperatures to drop back into the 20s after a week of warm spring weather. Too soon to plant outdoors, I’m enjoying the Bloom inside my Potting Shed with Spring on a Ladder! “The Earth laughs in Flowers,” by Ralph Waldo Emerson is one on my favorite quotes so I chalked up some flowers. Ball Jars are holding daffodils…

A Bicycle Built For Pumpkins

I picked up an old bicycle at a favorite antique mall for the bargain price of three pumpkins. . . I brought her home to take a spin around my Potting Shed. The person selling it, informed me she wasn’t road-ready. . . That’s okay by me since she’s pumpkin and vine-ready! Her tires are worn. . .…

Potting Shed: Pumpkins, Gourds, and Mums!

We’ve had a little teaser of fall temperatures, just enough inspiration to harvest some fall color around my Potting Shed! So I’m welcoming fall with open arms, along with pumpkins, gourds and mums! Oak leaves frame a bittersweet wreath and transferware lid hanging in greeting on the door. And my window box is liner-free and home for…

Fall Potting Shed Inspiration and Quaint Garden Sheds

With Fall around the corner, I’m looking for Potting Shed Inspiration! While we have plenty of summer weather still to come in North Carolina, I have a serious case of fall fever and am ready for fall leaves, mums, gourds, Indian corn, and pumpkins! The front door of my Potting Shed usually has either or basket. . . . . . or a…

Home is Where the Potting Shed Is

  I received this adorable handpainted jar with Home is Where the Potting Shed is on it.  It’s a mini painted replica of my Potting Shed, by Jenna at  the Painted Apron with oh-so-fun personalized details! She added cedar shake siding and red front door. Along with little details that I love including pumpkins. . .  And included my windows…
