Have a wander through the Alchemist’s Garden which is in Provence and is featured on About Gardens.

I am taking inspiration from the White garden, the black garden and the red garden — Each are so striking and full of interesting ideas.

Rills are fascianting me right now too.  I am contemplating how to easily incorporate one into my garden.  I am struggling with the idea of a rill in my little country setting.  In general it seems rather formal for my house….but this one, through the grass has me pondering my own possibilities.

I am also loving the idea of curtains….just for the sake of curtains.

As well as little black pots with pretty petunias held tall in metal stands.  Where can I buy those?

Getting an Early Start – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Are you an early spring indoor seed starter? I am not. Not that I wouldn’t like to be, but frankly I just don’t have the patience for the shenanigans I have to go through to do it successfully. I always get leggy, cat chewed, weaklings that seem highly un-worth the fact that I literally have…
