March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

‘Bordeaux’ Anemone Love Affair

Hi Lovelies, So, it's obviously still early in the season. I'm far from ready to reach my final conclusion about any of the new anemone varieties that I'm trying this year, but after seeing some more 'Bordeaux' open up, I absolutely have to share the pictures with someone! I hope you enjoy! Love to hear…

Quick Fall Update

Hi Lovelies, Well, I've been running around trying to get everything in the garden cleaned up while simultaneously taking care of what feels like 1000 other tasks, and I'm feeling quite exhausted! Just thought that I would quickly share a few things I've managed to get completed! Have a great day!

Sunshine and Bitter Days

Hi Lovelies, There's beauty in everything - in bare stems and in moldy leaves - it's just, sometimes you've just got to look a littler closer to find it. When it's over, the cycle begins again and we rejoice at the promise of the future and something new. I knew that it was coming -…

Planting Lots of Tulips, because why not?

Hi Lovelies, Day 20 has come a little bit early to the blog, for the main reason that I probably won't have internet access later tonight when I usually do my 2am writing - I know, I know. Anyway, one of the major tasks that I was able to accomplish today was planting out the…

Beginner’s Guide to a Gorgeous Spring Garden

Hi Lovelies, Well, we made it! Day 15 of Blog-tober! If I had known that 31 days of straight blog posts would be this difficult, I'm not sure I would have taken on the task - but, I'm enjoying it nonetheless. With tons of orders of spring seeds and bulbs landing on my front porch…

Last Year’s Tulips

Hi Lovelies, By now you've probably figured out that it's very rare that I do anything without procrastinating for as long as possible first. That means I haven't even ordered or bought my tulip bulbs. Technically, I could be planting them right now, but it's not exactly a secret that I'm waiting on them to…

What I didn’t anticipate about flower farming…

Hi Lovelies, I hope everyone is well! Today, I thought I would tackle something that's not necessarily directly related to the garden, but more so to the task that I've taken on. This was my first year growing a flower garden larger than my little ole' backyard. With this, it was necessary that I adopted…

Building a Hoophouse on a Budget

Hi Lovelies, Now that all of the zinnia beds are gross, and dahlias are in danger of being wiped out by frost at anytime, I've finally gotten around to starting to think about fixing up my sweet little hoophouse. Since I'm currently a city-dweller, there's absolutely no possible way that I'd have room for a…

Hardy Annual Update – Blog-tober Day 6

Hi Lovelies, After finishing last night's post about anemones, I've got to slow my roll a little bit. Besides - with tulip planting, hoophouse building, and new Youtube videos on the way (subscribe! whoop!); I need just a little bit of time to gather and collect my thoughts. Around the September 20; I pulled up…
