Recently I wanted to add a fresher look to the bedroom and using books again I picked pastel coffee-table books to use as risers for vintage fans and a fun wire chair. I enjoy seeing the way the pastel colors mix. What do you think?
To me, the garden is a doorway to other worlds; one of them,
of course, is the world of birds. The garden is their dinner table,bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries.

That little bird has chosen his shelter. Above it are the stars and the deep heaven of worlds. Yet he is rocking himself to sleep without caring for tomorrow's lodging, calmly clinging to his little twig, and leaving God to think for him.
All gardens, even the most native and naturalistic, benefit from the hand of an artful pruner. In this season where the garden is poised for the green flood of springtime, remember that our gardens are co-creations, shared with mother nature. And like any good mother, she expects you to tidy up your room. Now get clipping!
I know this doesn't look very artful, but pruning very large roses is sometimes more about the big picture than delicate art. These large climers have become so overgrown that their supports were tipping or sagging. We are doing some heavy-duty pruning with the help of Ben, Shannon, John and Drake.
The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.
We may play with and pass on a garden, possessing one is an illusion.Gardeners must dance with feedback, play with results, turn as they learn.Some gardeners don't grow old and stop playing; they stop playing and grow old.Nature's playfulness is a gardener's delight.A garden is a sporting field, an area for play.
