Bucket full of green and red - so simple and inexpensive.  Would be so pretty down at barn at Christmas!!  I so want to have something at Christmas in the barn so we can decorate it!  It would be absolutely beautiful!

Christmas On The Front Porch

We have a large screened-in front porch that is only used in the summer. We always come in through the back door. Even the UPS guy and the repairmen know to go around back. But the space is too lovely not to decorate for Christmas. The green and red of the branches from the backyard and the berries from across the road frame the gray and white of my vintage finds nicely. Isn't it lovely? If the weather were a little nicer, I would sit out there all day.

Container Gardening - Add a Pinch

Beautiful. Love the pots. Wonder if they are really galvanized metal or painted to look like it.

Wit druifje…

Toen ik een paar weken geleden in het tuincentrum was en mooie witte druifjes zag staan, besloot ik er een paar te kopen. Eenmaal thuis kwamen ze buiten onder het afdakje te staan. Het was natuurlijk de bedoeling om de witte druifjes snel in een pot te zetten, maar ik vergeet dat nog wel eens en ook deze keer was dat het geval. Ik heb echt geluk gehad dat het witte druifje zo weinig nodig heeft, want ze staan er nog prima bij. Inmiddels overigens wel in een paar zinken potjes en op de grijze…

Upside down tomatoes, could paint the metal buckets to dress them up.

and zinnias, sweet peas, and upside down tomatoes

Tragically, most of this zinnia's sister seeds died off in the Aphid Outbreak of 2008. But everytime I glance over at these babies, I'm SO excited that there were 6 out of thirty that survived! Those hearty little suckers... A little less than half of my sweet peas have already bloomed and gone to seed - but just tonight, I was over at Leigh's house, and hers were ABSOLUTELY still beautifully in bloom. I think there's a balance somewhere between drowning in sunshine and starving for light…

Recently I bought an Olive Basket from Walmart… yes, Walmart! Actually, I bought 2. They were only $9.88… a steal considering the real deal can cost well over $100.00.

Lockwood Lavender Farm

Our goal is deeply rooted in our commitment to preserving the agricultural heritage of the Finger Lakes region. We believe our farm should celebrate all that the acreage can provide: a sustainable annual and perennial crop of flowers, lavender, wheat, corn and soybeans, a working farm that harvests honey and welcomes new lambs every year. We are a tourist destination that gives visitors a connection to America's agricultural roots, a sight for learning and celebration.

This would be great for new house numbers - just picked one up at a thrift shop - now to paint it white and add a number.
