Spring will be here before we know it, and now is the time to begin assessing the garden and making plans for the gardening season ahead! Gardening is more popular than ever with 77 percent of American households getting their hands dirty in the garden in the last few years. While gardening can be a lot of hard work, it can also be rewarding when you put in the effort for regular maintenance during the rest of the year. *This post contains affiliate links and/or sponsored content.
Merry day after Christmas! Here in Kentucky we have enjoyed the most glorious surprise White Christmas, with picture perfect snowy views around our home and garden. We didn’t get the notification that a big snow was on the way until Dec. 23rd, so it was quite unexpected (especially when it was 63 degrees that day!) It has been over a decade since we have had a real white Christmas, so it truly made our holiday extra special! Here are a few favorite “White Christmas” pictures from today, Christmas Day, and Christmas Eve.
Happy Monday friends! Today I am sharing an impromptu post inspired by the beautiful foliage and berries on the azaleas and hollies in our landscape. It has been rainy and dreary all week, so I hadn’t been outside until this morning. When I stepped outside into another gray, chilly November day, I was pleasantly surprised by the vibrant pink and magenta foliage on the azaleas growing just outside our side door. As I strolled around to the front yard, I noticed that the hollies are looking amazing too! This inspired me to share a post about these lovely evergreen shrubs and how they provide beautiful late fall (and winter) garden interest.
