Pretty Evil Poison Ivy Berries

poison ivy berry

I am hoping with all my heart that relatively swift action will spare me from the worst poison ivy rash ever.  I learned today that there is a second line to the whole ‘leaves of three let it be’  thing.  It goes like this…‘berries of white, take flight’.   Who knew? Not me, until after I gleefully picked a whole bucket full of these beauties.  I even handed handfuls to my small son to put in the bucket for me.   I’ve technu’d and washed and I’m hoping for the best.   All in the name of the Thanksgiving Floral Event on Wednesday!

Did I mention the pretty dress (that doesn’t cover blistered hands) that I plan to wear for my best friends wedding this weekend?…these things never happen at a good time.  - rochelle

Before & After: Karen’s Pond

Did you see this over at Design Sponge last week?   I have to say, I love a garden created by a girl like Karen.  I am inspired by her to start digging my own pond (something I am perfectly capable of doing but never actually considered undertaking).  Who needs a contractor (right)!! (or wrong!?!) Karen…

Horse Sheds

I think this sort of thing is always a good way to start a week.   It just makes me think……And why not?   And why not make a horse shed that looks like a giant table and chairs?  And why not is a good place to start when designing. From Horses stand in…
