After Labor Day Whites

Limelight hydrangea by rochelle greayer www.studioblog.com
As you know — I love to tie garden design to other design practices…particularly fashion.  I had a little thought as I was driving through the country yesterday — gardens don’t follow the fashion rule about not wearing white after labor day. Plants don’t care about those rules and they just do what they want.

I tend to ignore these rules too (as I sit here typing in my favorite pair of white jeans) – so I thought I would share some great white blooming plants that come out and do thier thing after labor day.

What is blooming white in your garden — shockingly — after labor day?

Garden DIY: Build A Farm Tire Sand Box and Tee Pee

I fear I may have waited too long to build the sandbox for my kids. What age do you think that sand boxes become unexciting? I think around 6 or 7 but I am hoping that maybe I can stretch it a bit later? I just fired off a message to a local tractor supplier…

Beautiful Bocce Court

I wanted to make a quick post about an article I read some time ago in This Old House Magazine.  It is available online and it is one of the best articles I have seen about creating a great outdoor play area that is appropriate for all ages.  The design is excellent but the article…
