Thoughts on all things garden themed from an antique dealer gone amuck! I write, play with the dogs, and fill my house with garden art. There is hardly time to work the dirt!

Photos from my sis in Floral City, Florida.  So creepy they are beautiful. Nature and spring. Gotta love it.

Next time I complain about the ants crawling over the hood of my '79 Corvette, I'll remember my sister's tires.  I think I'll stick with the ants.


Welcome Spring In All Its Glory!

New Giveaway!

You know spring is here when the wisteria blooms.
Spring has sprung! This beautiful wisteria is blooming in my good friend Cheryl Alexander's back yard. Cheryl is also one of my favorite antique dealers and her booth at Antiques In Old Town, Lilburn, Georgia is the best. The shop should be on the top of your hit list. Check it out!

Free Giveaway. Leave Comment By May 21st 6PM EST To Enter.
Spring is also a time of bugs and critters in the garden. So your own beetle on a turquoise colored howite stone is the perfect accessory to wear this spring. A one-of-a-kind botanical necklace made of new and vintage parts. It is from my Time In The Garden collection that can be found at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens gift shop. This piece is tucked away safely at home for my winner.
How to enter? Leave a comment on this entry giving a garden tip and you will be automatically entered. Numbering will start with the first comment as number one. I will use a random number generator to pick the winner on May 21st.  Be sure I have a way to contact you. Deadline is May 21st at 6PM. Don't tally!
