The Secret Gardener
Spring, flowers and planting/garden time.. will be here before we know it! Of all the seasons I think Spring is my favorite, the new flowers and grass – the birds singing in the trees, but planting and gardening can go on year round.
What kind of idea’s – gifts for others or yourself – does this topic bring to mind? It can be indoor gardening as well.
Practical, whimsical, down and dirty (in the dirt planting), or garden design, while wearing your favorite white outfit? I’d love to hear your thoughts and see your items.
A fairy garden in my kitchen window brings a pop of green to our dreary landscape. We have many tiny items in our Shop that are perfectly sized for fairy gardens.
This little bird bath is one of them:
Our downloadable quilt block pattern features a little frog who isn’t quite sure whether the bumblebee is tasty or dangerous. This would be a fun decoration for a kitchen towel, mug rug, or spring wall hanging.
I love the spring season in my garden, when all plants grow up and every day we discover something new.
This year will be the third year in which I will be working intensively on a vegetable garden to provide ourselves with the whole year.
I look forward to do this.
I spend much time in my garden, and love to protect myself with one of my Sun Hats.
Gardening to me is about feeding us and creating a beautiful peaceful place to relax and reconnect with yourself and your spiritual guide.
But, as l love gardening anyway, each one of the four balconies of my home is full of plants.
On the kitchen balcony l have aromatic plants, herbs, used for cooking and seasoning: basil, peppermint, parsley, rosemary, and so on.
On the other ones, a wonderful hibiscus and many succulents, as in South Italy there is always enough sun for them, even in winter.
So, to celebrate mine passion and the next spring coming, l created a wreath, completely dedicated to gardening lovers.
Hope you enjoy it!
By creating flowers from felt I allow small reminders of that joyful moment to be kept through the year.
We made this whimsical floral pillow cover with spring in mind. The pink and yellow flowers are just so “happy”. Our pillow cover would fit perfectly in just about any home decor setting.
I really love Spring with its promise of new life both in the plant world and in the animal kingdom!
It is such a joy to see all of the beautiful and colorful flowers growing and the leaves coming back on the trees!
Gardening indoors and out is one of my favorite things to do and I enjoy planting all manner of flowers, veggies, and small ornamental trees!
It refreshes your spirit, is good exercise, and beautifies your surroundings.
Outside of a small apartment out in the country, in Lancaster, MA, I had 3 gardens which were all different color schemes!
My neighbors loved them and my pots of pansies, golden chain and weeping Japanese ornamental trees!
I used to do experiments with growing and pollinating, and even had a corn-stalk in the house!
One garden was all peach and white, another purples and blues, and the third was red, orange, and yellow.
It was so much fun planting unique varieties of roses, tulips, irises, lilies, hyacinths, phlox, Alaskan poppies, and lots more with various natural stone garden decorations!
It is definitely something I look forward to through the long Winters in the Northeast!
To me outside gardening is more for my husband but I love flowers, colors and all things springtime. I made outdoor birdhouses this month, of course, with owl lady owls hand painted on them.
Springtime and gardens are so lovely! When I worked at a local college back in my teaching days, I would visit the student gardens and spend my breaks they’re walking amidst the blooms.
