What color is your potting shed?
I have been asked to share the color used on Rabbit Run Cottage from several gardeners
in the past few weeks.
Though the trim color has changed a few times since Rabbit Run Cottage was built,
the building color has remained the same color.
The building is sided with cedar and stained with Cabot solid finish stain–color Sycamore.
This stain has held up incredibly well, does not fade!
In 10 years the little garden shed has only been stained twice.
It’s a color I have never tired of, it blends nicely in the garden.
It’s a color that looks nice with every season of the garden.
“To putter with green growing things, watching each day to see the dear new sprouts come up,
is taking a hand in creation, I think.
Just now my garden is like faith–the substance of things hoped for.”
–Lucy Maud Montgomery
The Thyme is growing quickly and I love snipping some sprigs to take to the kitchen.
My garden apron is so handy with the garden a little messy from some light rain this week.
This was one of many aprons I sewed for Country Gardens Magazine.
I lost count of how many samples I sewed; I was rewarded with a nice selection of aprons to wear.
My carefully tended tomato plants are ready for planting.
This basket from last season holds many of my favorite heirlooms.
Ananas Noir, Emerald Evergreen, Creme Brule, Ferris Wheel, Chocolate and more!
These are the gems of my kitchen garden.
May is a busy month in the greenhouse and garden.
More and more of the garden is emerging from the very long winter.
Plants are growing quickly and spilling out of garden pots and trays.
Each morning I move plants from the greenhouse to acclimate to the real world.
Yes, I do give them pep talks!
Gardening seems to be paying off!
While weeding and cleaning flower beds, a slightly faded five dollar bill caught my eye!
I did look around for more, but this seems to be the only one–for now!
Hoping I have a few more sprouting up!
Today I had the pleasure of speaking at our local library.
I love herbs and hopefully inspired some gardeners to start a culinary herb garden.
Little starter pots of herbs can be kept from drying out under a little overturned canning jar.
