Before & After: A Small Seattle Garden Grows to New Heights

I found this sweet little Seattle garden a few weeks ago over on the beautiful Northwest Botanicals website while combing the internet for some front yard landscaping ideas. It’s a small corner garden that started out with some scraggly plants slung over a bed of dirt and gravel, and it has evolved into a corner that’s quite charming. Of course, I now that I found this one I want my very own version, but I don’t think that will be happening any time soon.

Plant Color Inspiration: Blush

It is wedding season and for the first time in many years I have been involved in a couple of these events. I think it is a cyclical life thing. When you are younger you spend a lot of time and money on weddings, then you move into babies and now I am finding that…
