Phew – I’ve been busy!  As promised a few weeks ago, here’s the next phase of my front lawn-removal project.

Tantalizing Tillandsias

There’s something about tillandsias that makes my heart sing.  Even just saying the word is fun.  Maybe its due to their seemingly endless array of colors, shapes and textures.  Maybe its because of their somewhat freaky appearance.  Or maybe its because they’re one of the easiest ways to make a really creative statement in your […]

Heucheras (aka: Coral Bells or Allum Root) are one of my favorite perennials in the garden, whether adding spots of color in the front of the border, massed together in drifts or nestled into a container.   I’d be lost if I couldn’t use these little treasures in my designs, as their foliage comes in […]

Kniphopfias (aka: Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily) are one of my very favorite flowers to add vertical interest to the garden.  Seeing their snake-like stalks rise from a clump of lush leaf blades is always a joy to behold as they stretch their long necks what seems like several inches a day.

Easter & Annuals go hand in hand

by Rebecca Sweet
Thumbnail image for Easter & Annuals go hand in hand

 I’ll admit it – I haven’t included annuals in a design in a long, long time. Maybe even never. I’m not talking about the drool-inducing annuals over at Annie’s Annuals.  I’m talking about the tried and true (some might say ‘boring’) ones that have been used over and over and over again. Now, it’s not […]
