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!

When you’ve got way too much going on…

Hi Lovelies, So this blog post is going to start off with an apology. I was fully prepared to rock this post. I had two general ideas - collecting zinnia seeds or a brief review of my ordering experiences this past year. Well, I accidentally deleted the pictures I took for the zinnia post, so…

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…

If you live in one of those awesome areas where the temperatures are relatively mild and ranunculus grow and overwinter outside without protection, this post probably won't serve as much help. However, if like…

More Rain on my Parade

Hi Lovelies, Hope the day is finding you well. I can say that things are looking up a little here - but that's only because the internet connection is finally back and I can actually sit down and collect my thoughts. I went into this year being extremely thoughtful. By that, I mean, I planned.…

Out with the old, in with the new.

Hi Lovelies! It's that time of week again, and by that I mean - it's raining here and I actually have the time to breathe for a second. It's been another week of orders rolling in, mostly some perennials that I really, really wanted. I'm almost certain that my mail carrier really dislikes me by…
