Dear Deer

I am really into sticks and twigs this time of year.  Any way that I can use them to dress up and cozy up the inside the better.   I saw this great idea for using twigs at a German site called Das-Rote-Paket.  Do you think if I used Corkscrew Hazel (Corylus avellana “Contorta”)  branches it would look like a gazelle?

Daily Garden: Jo’s Jewel Garden

I really enjoy the mix of jewel tones plants in this garden.  Designer Jo Thompson says “These beds were then filled with a mass of various grasses including Stipa tenuissima, Calamagrostis brachytricha and Panicum virgatum ‘Heavy Metal’, inter-planted with perennials such as Salvia ‘Caradonna’ and Geum ‘Princes Irene’…  Yes, but what I really love is…

Garden Destinations: Oedo Island Garden, South Korea

Even though my summer seemed over full with adventures, my wanderlust-ing itch is rarely scratched for long.  So it goes with Oedo (pronounced way-do) Island off the coast of South Korea.   Doesn’t this garden look like an amazing place?  I am even more intrigued by the fact that there isn’t all that much information online (in English) about this place.
