I actually really believe and wholeheartedly encourage this!  People sometimes jump too big into gardening, get overwhelmed and never try again.  START SMALL, I say, and then work your way, little by little, towards sustainability and good health!

So, I love Pinterest and I love Gardening and I love that Pinterest lets me “pin” good gardening ideas (occasionally really bad gardening tips) and all sorts of inspirations to my heart’s content.  I use Pinterest like a bulletin board, where you tack something you don’t want to lose.  I use it like a file of clippings – just pinning anything and everything that strikes my fancy: articles, photos, good websites – all things I can go back and explore later.  Over the last almost-2 years (the length of time I have been Pinterest-ing),

Inspirations – gardens that I dream of tending one day, with all the accompanying barns, outbuildings and chickens!

First, you should be aware, this is how I see myself in the garden…not as the over-heated, dirt-smudged-faced, sweaty mess that I actually am.

Nice, neat little greenhouse boxes. Yes, says my left brain as I venture out with hoses that never crinkle and in the cutest garden togs ever.

I have long-wanted, since I started gardening in 1997, as a matter of fact, some simple and beautiful obelisks for my garden.  How fortuitous to have found these plans.  *batting eyelashes now…
