There are two things that influence today’s post:
First, a good friend took me to see the movie, “It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin (she even arranged my childcare, but that’s a different story). It’s a cute flick with some really hilarious scenes, but the best part for me was Meryl’s kitchen garden outside her home. My friend probably heard me gasp and said, “There’s your 40th birthday present right there.” That means I have 5 years to accomplish this, and my apologies to The Running Man, but I’m going to need a bigger yard.
Second, as I looked out onto my current garden in this dreary and cold February day, I longed for some green color. Happy flowers, edible fruit, that sort of thing.
Third, (I only thought it was only going to be two too), I thought you might enjoy a little warm weather garden beauty.
So we’re traveling west and south until we find temperatures and climate hospitable to such endeavors. And from my area, we need to travel faarrrr…
In fact, all the way to Santa Barbara, California to visit Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates and the gorgeous gardens she’s created.
These raised beds allow the best drainage for the soil. Love the lushness of it all.
Another raised bed perfect for all types of produce.
Hello lettuces! It’s just 6 months until I can grow you.
These pots all hold different types of fruits and vegatables. Perfect for when your soil is less than perfect. My adorables would wipe this clean in no time!
I love the look of this planter, all jam-packed full of life.
Okay, back to my winter weather. It’s just four more months until I’m back in the garden…
Again, special thanks to Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates.
