DIY Project ~ Create a Woodland-Inspired Wreath or Centerpiece for the Holidays on the Cheap!

The latest DCH workshop was a huge success! As we entered, rack after rack of every green you can imagine and a huge display of woodland and garden accents greeted us. Christmas music and refreshments quickly put everyone in the holiday spirit, not to mention the lovely aroma of all those fresh greens. DCH staff

It’s beginning to look a lot like … Chanukah!

    We celebrate Chanukah, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy decorating both inside and outside as much as the next person! Instead of a tree and the trimmings, you’ll find winter-themed outdoor decorations and special Chanukah vignettes made with heirlooms and handcrafted treasures. The outdoor decorations this year are  birdhouse and garden themed

DIY Project ~ Save Money by Creating Your Own Fancy Potted Paperwhites & Amaryllis Bulb Gardens

Last weekend I took an inspiration tour through the nearby Terrain Nursery Store. What a wonderful experience for the senses: freshly cut greens, bulb plantings in gorgeous containers, lovely music playing and plants of every texture and color. But when I read a few price tags, I was quickly jettisoned back to reality! As beautiful

DIY Project ~ Design a Rustic Cottage Getaway … in a Terrarium!

Recently, I found a tiny little porcelain cottage at a garage sale and decided it needed a terrarium to call home. Not much is happening outside in the garden this time of year, so working in my garden room has to satisfy my green thumb for the time being. Making a terrarium is a quick

Happy Thanksgiving ~ Make a cornucopia of fresh fruit & flowers for a centerpiece!

Emily Smith does it again! Her most recent floral arranging workshop at the Delaware Center for Horticulture was a big hit with the class, creating fresh fruit and flower Thanksgiving cornucopias. Wonderful materials were available : radishes, pears, lady apples, greens (including sage leaves, seeded eucalyptus and cedar), snapdragons, mini-carnations, roses, mums, hypericum and sunflowers.

Getting Into the “Spirit” of Halloween ~insert spooky music here~

Almost mid-October and there’s a nip in the air, must be time to decorate for Halloween! This has to be one of my favorite holidays of all. Len and I love sitting out on the porch swing handing out candy to visiting Trick or Treaters and admiring all their costumes and finery.  Mostly it is

Fall has arrived in Our Fairfield Garden! The nights are cool now and the mornings brisk. After seeing my breath early in the day , I scamper about trying to get the houseplants and tender perennials back inside. Nightfall is here way too early and soon will be earlier  as Daylight Savings Time robs another
