Inspiration : Front Stoop

+++ image source +++ statley kitsch I need another project like I need a hole in the head, but honestly we/I have to do something about our front stoop. Replacing the front steps was the first thing on our to-do list when we moved in (5 years ago), but over the years priorities have shifted, and the front steps keep moving further and further down the ol' to-do list. We did do our darnedest to repair the steps four years ago when we realized how much it would cost to replace the concrete (2-3 READ MORE

Thinking About : The Garden

Astilbe I've never grown Astible in the garden. Its flowers are so feathery and the foliage is reminiscent of ferns. It comes in array of colors and sizes and prefers the shade. I think it could look really stunning mixed in with the hostas on the shady side of the backyard garden. This spring will mark the beginning of my sixth gardening season. All of the plants in the garden are mature now, and the garden and flower beds have really filled in. I can't even tell you how much I love to READ MORE
