Lately it seems that many of my favorite websites are posting about the thing that is on most everyone’s mind right now – getting outside and returning to the garden.
The Kansas City Library recently posted a very cool photo slideshow on Flickr featuring impressive landmark design by landscape architecture firm, Hare and Hare. I spent about 20 minutes studying these photographs and trying to figure out where they are located in the city. While you are visiting, check out the vast number of other interesting photo sets that the library has on their Flickr page.
Dressing up or adding window boxes is a great way to spruce up your home after a long, dreary winter. This slideshow from Better Homes and Gardens features many different color combinations and plant varieties for your window boxes. I always love to see the bright green sweet potato vine, but I think I might try ivy this year instead for my trailing plant.
