Urban Gardener

I use a little corner of my porch to hone my container gardening skills, I hunted long and hard for the right thing to hang above my potting table. It is a handmade birdie note card holder I can use for seed packets & postcards, though even bare it has loads of charm.

I was about 11 years old when I first became enchanted with the ideal of soil and seed and things that grow after reading The Secret Garden. Required reading for all little girls imo.

My potting table is one of those lucky finds that makes me believe in serendipity. It also does doube duty as a make up table for photo shoots. It is now being offered at an incrediably good price, more than 50% less than what I paid a year ago, which was still cheap.

 

Kawaii Garden Essentials

I have an awesome friend who gifted the largest of the Orla flower pots to me for the holidays. So. Much. Awesomeness. Now I want the other two...

What a lovely uplifting post on this cold, grey day! I can not wait for spring, how lucky to live in a climate where you don't have the wait.
