Last Saturday I had the opportunity to go to a rose care class at one of the local Armstrong Garden Centers. These stores are only in California and are known for offering free one hour classes on certain Saturdays throughout the year. I took a bunch of notes during the class and today want to share with you what I learned about growing roses.
Happy Sunday! Here is my next collaborative post! I hope you find ideas on making your small garden look bigger below!
Gardens are fantastic. Anyone that’s ever lived in a flat or an apartment will know more than anyone how much you can miss having your own outdoor space. Your garden is your own little bit of nature. A place where you can relax and unwind, enjoy some vitamin D, exercise and dry your washing. Is there anything better than the fresh smell of sheets that have been left to dry outside?
Happy 2018 everyone! I’m so excited for the new year and some changes that come along with it! One of these changes is adding collaborative posts to my blog!
My very first collaborative post is about making your small garden flourish! If some of the wording sounds little different, its because this post comes from the UK.
Despite the fact that Christmas is less than a week away, I’m sure there are many people scrambling to find a real tree for the big day. There are many types of Christmas trees to chose from, as seen from the countless lots I’ve driven by in the last month. Today I want to discuss the types of Christmas trees in Southern California.
At the beginning of the year, my best friend’s in-laws gave me an amaryllis bulb from their collection. This bulb grew into several huge beautiful flowers when my husband and I were away on a weekend trip, but we were able to enjoy those colorful blooms for a few weeks. I’ve been seeing a lot of bulbs being sold, so I thought this would be a good time to talk about amaryllis care.
When done right, it does not take much to care for amaryllis plants. It does take some patience since you have to wait for the bulb to bloom. What is an amaryllis anyway? Keep Reading!
I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year. It’s a little cooler now, but the sun still shines and plants are still growing here in Southern California. A plant that I am now starting to see frequently is the poinsettia and today I would like to tell you all about poinsettia plant care.
Today I want to share with you some things about my crazy journey blogging so far. Many bloggers, somewhere on their journey, decide to try to monetize their blog they worked so hard on. I want to tell you how I made $80 my seventh month blogging.
I’ve learned so much since I started this blogging journey. I have more tips you can read about in 6 Lessons from 6 Months of Blogging.
I have a confession to make. When I decided to try my hand at blogging, I learned by watching and reading tutorials on a site designed to blog for money. I learned later on that one of the big no-nos of blogging was to not blog to make money. Keep Reading!
I love living by the ocean and the availability of beach décor all over the place. While roaming around Pinterest awhile ago I saw a picture of a beautiful seashell filled with succulents and had to make one! Today I want to tell you how you can make your very own seashell succulents planter.
I was never a big fan of chrysanthemums until this year. I was recently wandering around Home Depot, which I do frequently, and fell in love with an orange mum whose flowers displayed several shades of orange. Today I want to tell you all about mum flower care.
