A landscaped backyard with various colorful plants and flowers surrounding a small pond with a waterfall on the sleepy slope. There is a rustic wooden bench in the foreground, and a stone retaining wall in the background. A green arrow with "After" written on it highlights the transformation.

I received a lovely Before & After from Claire over at The Garden Diaries last week, and I’m excited to share her hillside pond makeover with you guys today. What was once just a plain set of steps up the side of a grassy hill has become a fantastic hillside retreat nestled into a slope […]

Close-up of two blooming yellow and brown irises with water droplets on the petals, nestled in a Chartreuse garden. The flowers have intricate patterns and are surrounded by green leaves and stems. The background is blurred, highlighting the details of the irises.

I’ve turned into a weird hoarder when it comes to Chartreuse plants in my garden. They have always been a favorite of mine.  It only takes a few to make a really big impact so I find myself taking extra efforts to place them in just the right spot. I think harder about where to put […]

A roll of Union Copper Flashing with dimensions 3 ounces, 8 inches by 20 feet is displayed standing upright on a wooden surface. The label includes compatibility information, warnings, and usage instructions in both English and Spanish, detailing its use to control slugs effectively.

I got an early start on my garden this year but quickly have been a bit demoralized. I planted radishes, beets, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, spinach, kale, peas, and broccoli in April, and while I got lots of babies, I really only have a few pea plants, a bunch of hole-y radishes and an odd spinach and […]

It’s time for another garden inspired by fashion, and once again, I have found something that I think is really fun by my new favorite fashion illustrator – goodyfinch at Can’t not Know. Really, almost all of my inspirations lately are coming from this amazing artist. This one is titled Christian Dior 08, and I think it […]
