Before & After: Diane’s Gorgeous Shed

shed, rustic, before and after, transformation

When I found this awesome shed makeover last week I knew you guys were going to love it. I’ve always held a special place in my heart for sheds…I think it’s because they’re pretty much like forts for adults. And really, who doesn’t want their own fort to escape to on hot summer days? And since I don’t have a shed [fort?] of my own yet, I like to live vicariously through those who do. The before photo features the original shed which definitely held it’s own in the department of rustic charm. But Diane’s beautifully remodeled shed is a real showstopper.

I told you it was good. I love the rich golden tone of the new siding and the mature plants that hug the edges. Oh, and the coolest part? Their siding came from 5 spruce trees in their yard that had to be cut down. The trees were made into planks that were then stacked flat to dry out in their old shed for an entire year! That’s some serious dedication. I’m sure I don’t have to mention that a ton of work has gone into this project since the beginning. If you want to check out the entire process or see what it looks like inside, you should head over to her blog. It’s well worth a visit. Awesome job, Diane! I love it. –erin

Malope trifida : Annual Mallow – Flower seeds for Cutting

Once again, I have dove into the giant RHS Encyclopedia of Garden Plants to find inspiration, not only for my own garden but also for yours.   I have this thought that, perhaps with time, I might evolve my own garden into a “Cut your Own” sort of place whereby visitors can visit and take away…

Chanel’s Pop Up Garden

7000 flowers, 4800 hours of work to assemble, 4000 m2 paper.  WOW!! Utterly beautiful, but I think it would have been easier to grow all those white flowers!

Last Week’s Fall Plantings in Worcester, MA

Last week my team and I planted up downtown Worcester.  We put in about 900 seasonal plants throughout the property all in one day (Whew).  Emily took these great pictures the day after.  Everything looks so great, and it isn’t even in full color yet as the many of the mums (including dark and light…
