Traipsing Through the Heirloom Garden

We took off for the mid-Atlantic last week to celebrate 20 years of our family. We decided to introduce the kids to some of our favorite places from our early days. One of our favorites is and will always be the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Boats, boats, and more boats with a lighthouse thrown in…

You Can Grow That: The Neighbor’s Hydrangea

When you discover that you have a great neighbor, you know you have a treasure. Our little neighborhood has a whole mess of great neighbors. We share plants and talks on the stoop. One neighbor in particular is kind enough to let me propogate her gorgeous French Lace hydrangea over the summer.

Traipsing Through the Community Garden

We had a rare chance today to visit one of my favorite community gardens. It’s a plot of land behind a small airport that has been home to a community garden for years. Since I became interested in gardening, I’ve wanted to visit it and inquire about getting a plot. Thanks to a sweet friend…

Traipsing Through Selby Botanical Gardens

While we were on vacation earlier this month, we had an opportunity to wander through the Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. I absolutely love botanical gardens and this one did not disappoint.
