Monday Morning Wanderlust: Monastero Santa Rosa

I have a confession — I think I am getting on my husband’s nerves….but I can’t stop.

monastero santa rosa amalfi coastIt’s January, cold and I’m up for a get-out-of -town sort of adventure.   So all weekend I found myself suggesting we could go there…we were talking about my daughter trying out for the play footloose (which takes place in the Midwest) — I say, “Hey we could go to Chicago”….then my daughter is reading Guinness Book of World Records – out loud -…(the largest coral reef is in Belize) – “Hey, we could go there, or maybe just Central America in general” I say.  Then while researching for my book project, I discover a small apartment (perfect for 4) in Istanbul with a pretty garden will only run us $410/ per week….”We could sooo go there….”

I’ve got wanderlust on the mind, hardcore….then (again with the book research) came Monastero Santa Rosa on the Amalfi Coast….and it’s cliff side gardens.  Yep, we could go there (but I am not saying it ….).

You gotta check it out…(click through and then onto garden gallery) — to virtually whisk yourself away.

Backyard Pizza Oven’s: A DIY Round-up

Summer is coming and the joys of outdoor cooking are fast approaching.  My husband and I have long dreamed of building a wood fired bread and pizza oven for our own landscape and while I know that other projects are going to take precedent this year….I am still planning in the back of my mind…

Landscape Color Themes

There are too many choices in the plant world, and it is so easy to loose focus which is why limiting your color theme always works. But I love the idea of taking it to an extreme. Like this lavender garden, it becomes modern without being cold or stark. This is all just inspiration. –…

French Bull: Affordable Dishes for the Garden

As a pattern lover, I am completely crazy for the collection of melamine dishes available from French Bull.  Easy, affordable, lightweight, and unbreakable, melamine is the perfect material for garden serving pieces.   French Bull isn’t tempted to make everything too match-y match-y and many of their patterns can play well with each other. These are…
