Thrifty Blooms



My garden has been featured in the latest issue of Pennsylvania Gardener, I can't believe it!
Laura Mathews, of Punk Rock Gardens, has written and photographed this wonderful article about how I have created my flower gardens on a budget. If you click on each photo, it will bring up a larger image and you should be able to read it. I am so excited for spring.
It's been one cold, snowy, winter and I long for color. 





I've made some beautiful Etsy treasuries this week. I think one may have reached the front page because it has received over 800 hits on the first day. I've never had one take off like that.

And a cute photo of my Zazu, just because.

Oh Jen...that is sublimely awesome!!!!! What a wonderful compliment to you as a gardener!!

I too look forward to Spring...but it is a bit farther away up north here. I'm hoping to spend much more time in my gardens this year than I have in the past few years.

The treasuries are fantastic...and WOW...that one does have an amazing amount of hits! How wonderful if it has gone to the Etsy Front Page!!

Wonderful blog. Congrats on the magazine feature. I will be gardening again this year after a long break now that I have a space to do it. I plan to grow the black petunias I saw in the picture..how do they do?
