  1. I Love Gardening! Fun ideas… I never knew a tire could look so lovely. šŸ™‚

    This year I won’t be able to do as much planting as I would like. We are moving this summer so, I’m limited to the number of pots that I can or want to move across state. But, I have planted some herbs and house plants that are thriving on my patio (That is when it’s warm enough). I love planting in terra cotta pots… In fact, I will be posting some of my spring planting soon. I got a big surprise when I was changing the soil in on pot. šŸ™‚

  2. Hi Kelly, thanks for featuring our Pallet Potting Table! Our weather here has been a little crazy, we have been in the mid 80’s one day and freezing last night, high today in the low 60’s. My garden does not know what to do? Some of my onions bolted because of this constant change in temperatures. oh well, I’m sure it will change again soon. Have a great evening!

  3. I have been too busy to follow any blogs–what a ridiculous statement, but it’s been true! What a delight to open up your blog and see all the fun, colorful ideas–blue balls and all! Happy spring! It was 19 degrees in Minnesota this morning, but we’re hoping for warmer days ahead!!!!

  4. Cool ideas … gotta say, I’m lovin’ the “colorful mulch” with blue balls! I’d love to do that, BUT, my kiddo and his friends would be too tempted to start throwing them!
