Oh me, oh my! What do I do? This disgusting cuteness showed up this morning in the fairy garden I’ve been building under our apple tree. I have watched my mother and our grandmothers battle snails in their gardens my whole life and was always happy we lived in a place that didn’t have snails... #springgarden summergarden #fairygarden#snailsofinstagram#marbles#birdbath
We gave the space a country feel with stacked stone walls, flagstone patio, and shaker style sconces. The horizontal cedar fence and floating bench provide modern touches. The cottage-style planting includes rudbekia, creeping thyme, liriope, lambs ear, amelanchier, ornamental grasses, and a sour cherry fruit tree.
Tintinhull Garden located in the English County of Somerset is a small 20th Century Art and Crafts style garden. It was originally laid out by Phyllis Reiss and developed by Penelope Hobhouse. The garden is separated into “rooms” by Yew hedges and walls. It includes a pool garden, eagle court, middle garden and fountain garden.❤ . . . #ukscenery#yew#ponds#oldworldcharm#pergola#walledgarden#waterfeature#waterfeatures#pavilions#pottedplants#loveplants#springgarden#colorfulgarden#growbabygrow#planthoarder#gardenlifestyle#loveflovers#beautyfulflowers#landscapestyle#instagardeners#gardens_and_architecture#historicgarden#hedges#gooddesign#gardenstyle#gardenofengland#gardening_feature#gardenarchitecture#gardenfeature#englishgarden 📷@nationaltrust @thefrustratedgardener
The prompt for today is outdoor dining @mygardenthismonth Sadly there has been very little of that here.I can’t even pretend and show you a beautiful table I have set just for insta as the table isn’t even out! Previous years our wooden table and chairs have lived on the top level of our garden by the greenhouse but this year Mr H decreed that as the grass underneath deteriorates we would only have out when needed. It’s only been out once so far this year! Grr. Far too heavy for me to lug up three sets of steps even for you! Would be lovely to have another area of patio but garden not big enough. So instead a view of the area at the back of the patio, a barbecue last month that we ended up eating inside, my family having a barbecue last Sunday next to our canal boat on the Kennet and Avon canal. . . #mygardenthismonth @littlehouseinlondon @jonpaulclark @itslucy
Sometimes, ya gotta do what ya gotta do! The top of this tomato plant was snapped (cause unknown) so I put a splint on it! Low and behold, a week later, it's healing! Didn't hold my breath, but those leaves perked right up! Crazy. 🍅
A new pretty addition to our backyard - variegated hebe. Don’t you like those leaves? And the contrast of the pretty purple flowers? Do you have it growing in your garden? How does it behave? Let me know 😉
2685. “That was the moment where it all came full circle.” While Chandler Lutz was working as a sales intern at @phl17, she decided to take a break from her desk to wander around the office and stumbled upon the news studio. There, she practiced reading a news report and felt right at home thanks to her previous experience in entertainment. Though she’s originally from South Jersey, Chandler actually spent a year in Los Angeles during high school. In that time, she cut an album with Seth Riggs (Michael Jackson’s former vocal coach) and acted in independent films while simultaneously raising money for a charity she started. As a result, Chandler leveraged her natural presence in front of the camera to land a traffic reporter role at PHL17 just 6 months after her graduation from @saintjosephs. She then sharpened her on-camera skills there, and though she received anchor offers from markets like a town in Mississippi, Chandler stayed in Philly and eventually received a call from @cbs_philly. She joined the CBS team last August and now wakes up at about 2:30am-3am each morning to report the traffic news here in the city. Though she holds an abnormal sleep schedule so she can still fit in her passions of cooking, going to the gym and spending time with her boyfriend, Chandler loves her job and now has the ability to bring stories (like mine!) to light through her new segment, 3 Cheers! Awesome hanging with you and looking forward to the story, @chandlermarielutz! #10kfriends#philly#fairmount#springgarden#fullcircle#reporter#singing#acting#charity#stjoes#phl17#cbsphilly#traffic#threecheers#meetingpeople • How we met: Chandler heard about my project through her friend, @davidgrzy (#1266), and was then introduced to me via email so we could do a story together for her 3 Cheers segment on @cbs_philly!
When you feel copied, remember that people can only go where you have been, they have no idea where you are going next. ~Liz Lange Where is your future taking you? Are you paying attention to where other people are going or are you focused on your own path? It's easy to get caught up in comparing ourselves to other people and looking at what they are doing vs what we are doing. Unfortunately this can be a trap. If you are spending more time looking at others than you are working on your own dreams then you are most likely not very happy with the way that things are going. Do you know where YOU are going next? Are you following your inner guides and making your dreams come true or are you sitting on the sidelines of life and watching and waiting? Today's art was created to encourage you to find your own unique inner path and follow it. You can see the clear direction to the flowing water and at the same time the rocks settled at the edge of the deck. No longer moving and most likely there for a long time. Will you be the water or the rocks? #cleardirection#lifechoices#movingforward#spirituallife#spiritualart#motivationalart#liveyourbestlife#entrepreneurmindset#mompreneur#edupreneur#motivationalartwork#methowvalley#springgarden#springinthemountains#methowriver#waterart
