Pretty Evil Poison Ivy Berries

poison ivy berry

I am hoping with all my heart that relatively swift action will spare me from the worst poison ivy rash ever.  I learned today that there is a second line to the whole ‘leaves of three let it be’  thing.  It goes like this…‘berries of white, take flight’.   Who knew? Not me, until after I gleefully picked a whole bucket full of these beauties.  I even handed handfuls to my small son to put in the bucket for me.   I’ve technu’d and washed and I’m hoping for the best.   All in the name of the Thanksgiving Floral Event on Wednesday!

Did I mention the pretty dress (that doesn’t cover blistered hands) that I plan to wear for my best friends wedding this weekend?…these things never happen at a good time.  – rochelle

Garden Planning101 – If the Kids can do it, So can you.

Kids have fantastic design sense and even great drawing ability.  I am discovering this as I layout my new garden plans for 2011 with my kids, rather than on CAD in my office as I would normally do for a client.  Both my son and daughter have churned out various plans for our garden and…

Sophora prostrata

I am highly influenced by the convergence of beautiful photography with fantastically different plants.  Such was the case when I stumbled across a post at Leila’s about some houseplants that she is testing out. This image of Sophora prostrata made me gasp.  I am obsessing over those little baby fern leaves – and I must have one.  I found them…
