When I think of perennial plants my mind automatically goes to shrubs, flowers, bushes and trees, but did you know that there are select herbs in Michigan that are also considered perennials? One of my favorite ways to fill space in the garden is by planting complementary herbs. I have them growing in tubs on […]
I know what you’re thinking. Florals for spring? Ground breaking. Floral patterns tie in my love for fashion and gardening and I can’t get enough of them. When Sezane (can you tell I’m a bit obsessed) had their spring mini capsule release on Sunday this is one of the items I snatched up. I also […]
The air was crips and spring like and we had a break in the clouds with a week long forecast of rain so I decided to take Otto for breakfast before bringing him to school. We grabbed some “candy floss” (that is Peppa Pig speak for cotton candy) and went for a walk around the […]
It was a rare moment. I had a few hours of solo shopping while I was in Orlando this winter. Otto and Joe were having a swim and I snuck off to the outlets for a bit of quiet time. I love outlet shopping. I’m dutch to more core and I LOVE a good deal. […]
If you scroll through all of the spring outfit suggestions on Pinterest you will no doubt come in to contact with ads for SHEIN Official. Tempted in the past, I never pushed the “Purchase Now” button on the site. I always thought no way this is that price. It’s probably going to come ten sizes […]
I finally did it last fall. I finally bundled up and headed outside in the cold and planted hundreds of tulips, daffodils, alliums and hyacinths in the ground before it hardened and froze before the Michigan winter hit. While I experienced some disappointments with the amount of success, the row has produced a few handfuls […]
Mother’s day is a day that means so much to me. While it’s nice that Joe and Otto take the time to make the day extra special I truly enjoy reflecting back on my journey to becoming a mom. Even with all of the struggles and heartbreak it has been truly the greatest gift of […]
Before you plant, create a plan! I have finally finished my raised bed plans using my grow veg planner and now i’m finishing up my seedlings in preparation for the summer garden. In Michigan, many vegetables like flowers need to be started a little earlier indoors for you to pick the optimal amount of produce […]
Since our home remodel has been pretty much put on hold until the unforeseeable future courtesy of insane lumber prices and labor shortages we are slowly making the short term fixes around the house and farm. We are patching the brick instead of replacing and we are holding off on new windows until we are […]
I had an opportunity to visit the Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile, Alabama during my latest family vacation and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The gardens span over 65 acres and it took us just over two hours to walk the grounds and home and take everything in. Walter Bellingrath made his fortune […]
I have searched the internet high and low for a hobby greenhouse for probably the last four years. I looked at DIY greenhouse options, prefab kit greenhouse options and custom built greenhouses. All of them where either out of my budget or my skill level. It took Joe and I almost an entire pandemic just […]
