I love what celebrating love is all about. IF you do that year round IT'S incredible! I arrange my own flowers all the time! (Yes I've worked in flower shops and yes I still prefer to teach yoga and pilates) p.s. the day after any man made holiday has super rates for flower lovers. Meanwhile I still recommend growing your own! #greenthumb #horticulturelover #mastergardener #constantgardener #thegrassisgreenerwherewewaterit
Cilantro bolts when temperatures heat up and/or after it has completed its life cycle. Just because the temperatures are low does not mean that it will not go to seed. You can’t tell from this angle but this plant is a couple feet high. Once you see these little white flowers don’t be so quick to pull them from your garden. It’s cool because the flowers attract pollinators. As a matter of fact everything from this plant family, umbelifer, attracts all sorts of pollinators and beneficials. Not to mention the flowers lead to coriander seeds. Honestly is there such thing as having too much or too many spices in your kitchen? I don’t prune my cilantro, and I usually always let it go to seed. And because of this I haven’t had to replant cilantro in a long time. Hopefully I never will. You know me all about letting it do what it do. Why stop what nature has planned. _______________________________________________ • • • • • #GardenDesigner #GardenCoach #EdibleLandscaping #SustainableGarden #GrowingHouston #MasterGardener #GrowForIt #BlackFarmers #BlackExcellence #GYO #BackyardGarden #GrowingFood #UrbanGarden #HoustonTexas #EpicGardening #OrganicGarden #GetGrowing #EdibleGarden #EdibleLandscape #BlackGardeners #Herbs #UrbanOrganicGardener #GardenInspo #GardenInspiration #SlowFoodMovement #Cilantro #BlackHistoryMonth #HerbGarden #TheHappyGardeningLife

Nothing compares to a HOME GROWN TOMATO🍅 Seriously ‼️ And any self-respecting gardener covets the arrival of the new seed catalogs 📖 picking out the coolest varieties 🌱 by color, flavor, shape and size ☀️ Summer can’t come soon enough for me 🤩💕
My curios search of interesting nurseries, plant wizards and wild folks in the Pacific Northwest, to connect, collaborate and exchange seeds, plants and knowledge with, continues... I found another epic place today @xeraplants. Xera focus on climate adapted plants, such as dry tolerant plants suitable for Portland's very hot and dry summers. To have full control over the quality, hardiness and the variety of species, they have there own production nursery outside of Portland. Combining production with retail service, knowing from my own experience of how much work that is, is very impressive. Specially since Xera nursery is so well taken care of. Flawless I would say... . I had the pleasure to talk with the founder and owner Paul, whom among his fellow crew seem to hold a great deal of skill, experience and knowledge on how to select suitable plants for a given location (habitat/biome). We share the same basic understanding for a successful garden; match the plants with their natural and appropriate growing conditions. Paul also wrote the book "Gardening in the Pacific Northwest" which I look forward to read. #gardeninginthepacificnorthwest Today was a little step further into the plant kingdom of The Pacific Northwest. And this time with a new found gardening friend from Sweden! How wonderful to share both culture and language, mostly around plants, with Anna Kullgren @ovanna11 for a while, thanks Anna for a great day! At this moment I'm hired to restore a beautiful garden in Portland, before the property is going on sale. If you have any other cool garden projects, reach out, I'm knowledgeable, avaliable and easy to co-operate with. I also offer some services without costs as part of me learning more about the special conditions and plants of this region. #xeraplants #xeraplantsinc #portlandnursery #designgardens #nursery #organicplants #portland #ornamentals #cascades #pacificnorthwest #herbs #herbalmedicine #foraging #nativeplants #wild #scandinavian #nordic #nordicnorthwest #mastergardener #gardener #gardendesign #swedeinusa

I’m reminiscing of some of my favorite flower moments and one of them is the Oslo blomstermarkedet or flower market three years ago. It was visually amazing and the scent in the air amazing. Looking forward to heading there again someday. • • • #gardening #gardenersofinstagram #gardenchat #flowers #naturephotography #gardenjournal #horticulture #mastergardener #seasonalflowers #winter #garden #gardenblogger #slowlived #mygloriousgardens #countryliving #farmlife #dahlias #flowermarket #oslo #blomstermarkedet #travel

As a first time gardener, one of the unknowingly hardest parts of growing my own food was figuring out how to deal with the harvest and actually use all of it. The first year I ever produced my own vegetables I wasted a lot of them! They ended up rotting in the fridge and being tossed to the chickens or on the compost pile, or rotting directly in the garden because I didn't need them at that moment. It took some time for me to figure out what eating seasonally really meant, and what it all came down to was: creativity in the kitchen and learning how to preserve my harvests. Today on the blog I am sharing how I deal with meal planning around the garden! Click the link in profile to read 🌱 #UATRgarden

Welcome to the weekend friends! There’s something about Fridays that makes us feel a little happier. We get excited about the weekend, those around us seem to be in a great mood, and the notion that we may be able to catch up on some sleep the next morning is certainly something to get excited about even if sleeping in is unlikely. What else brings you joy? For me: •This garden...It greets me with a smile every time I pull in the driveway or walk out my front door. •Spending time with my friends and family...we always have a good time celebrating something even if it’s just the everyday. •Great food...I’m a super foodie and put a lot of love into everything I cook. I also love to go out and try new restaurants or cuisines. •Good music...whether I’m working on a project, running or practicing yoga, music always makes me happy. . . . . #gardeners #gardens #gardendesigner #mastergardener #ihaveathingwithplants #findhappy #behappyandsmile #betterhomesandgardens #provenwinners #provenwinnersplants #monrovia #finegardening #poppies #nepeta #allium #deerproof #butterflygarden #gardenersofinsta #gardenersofinstagram #mygarden #flowersofinsta #frontgarden #happyplace #theearthlaughsinflowers #in210friday #farmhousetablegatherings
I never knew a BlackBerry wine could be so complex, balanced and well, amazingly yummy! Oh and the bouquet!! But that’s what I got when we opened this 5 year old bottle of blackberry wine Made with wild blackberries from our farm. (Please ignore the crappy labels 🙈) I’ve never been very impressed with any ‘country wines’ I mostly just liked making them! I realize now we always drink them really young,, like 1 year! Which I had always been told was idea for non grape wines. So from now on all my wines will have a little touch of age on them before we uncork! 🍾🍷 As I watch my fruits and grapes bud up outside I’m very excited about my new wine fermentation house and what wines I will create!🍷🍷always something to look forward to on the homestead ♥️ #winemaking #winelovers 🍷 #homesteadwinery #countrywine

Happy Friday! Woke up dreaming of warm summer sunsets, delicate flower petals and the sounds of the breeze as they play with the corn stalks in the field.

Sweetgum is easily recognized by its distinctive glossy tooth-edged leaves which resemble five-pointed stars. #mastergardener #mysteryplant #mgnv #sweetgum #liquidambarstyraciflua
Your (and my) favourite photo of 2018: the garden at midsummer, full of veggies, herbs and flowers. . What a year it has been - full of gardening, but also writing about gardening (my book is available for preorder-link in profile!), filming and teaching. Next to gardening itself, my favourite thing is to help others create the gardens of their dreams and this year has been full of that too. I am finishing 2018 with a deep sense of gratitude for the many abundant harvests and opportunities it has brought. And I am thankful to you for following along, generously sharing your knowledge, likes and kind words! Happy gardening!!! . ----------------------------------------------------- .

Old heads used to always tell me about patience, & I never understood it. I get it now, & planting a fruit tree is the definition of patience- not all that instantaneous stuff there is now. Planting a fruit tree takes a different kind of endurance- right? I mean you have to care for the tree for YEARS before you get your first harvest. But, once that tree starts producing, you’re set. These are some buds from my recently pruned Eva’s pride peach tree. A sign that spring is approaching 🤙🏾 • t-shirts coming soon • Tomorrow is a big day- my order from @westcoastseeds comes in _______________________________________________ • • • • • #GardenDesigner #GardenCoach #EdibleLandscaping #SustainableGarden #GrowingHouston #MasterGardener #GrowForIt #BlackFarmers #BlackExcellence #GYO #BackyardGarden #GrowingFood #Patience #UrbanGarden #HoustonTexas #EpicGardening #OrganicGarden #GetGrowing #EdibleGarden #EdibleLandscape #BlackGardeners #UrbanOrganicGardener #GardenInspo #GardenInspiration #SlowFoodMovement #FruitTrees #FruitTree #BlackHistoryMonth #TheHappyGardeningLife

A couple dozen hardy souls joined the Master Gardener Pruning Specialists at the Owen Rose Garden and braved the rainy weather to learn how to prune roses.  This hands-on workshop allowed participants to practice their new skills on rose plants in the public garden.  Now they can go home to their rose bushes and snip and clip with confidence! #HappyGardening  #Pruning  #Roses #RoseGarden #Gardening   #Classes   #HappyPlants #MasterGardener   #OSUExtension #LaneExtension  #LaneCounty

🎶 "One of these things is not like the others..." 🎶 Notice the brown aphid on the right...the one that looks more "plump" than normal? Inside is a developing wasp that will soon emerge by cutting a round hole in the skin of the aphid (while all the other aphids watch and scream!). You can watch these tiny, gnat-sized wasps at work crawling around a bunch of aphids in your garden, ovipositing an egg into individual aphids. Way cool!!! • • • • #beneficials #beneficial insects #organic #organics #organicgardening #organicfarming #houstongarden #houstongardening #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #mastergardener #mastergardeners #mastergardenersofinstagram

Happy Valentine’s Day! I grew you some flowers! 😉💐 I want to give those white fairy fluffs sticking out the sides and top a closer look this summer. It might be False Aster, Boltonia asteroides, and grows along the fence of our semi-swampy backyard. I’d love to seed some more back there. ✨

Timbuktu. Bora Bora. Darjeeling. Balikpapan. Kathmandu. Zanzibar. I've been intrigued by these places my whole life, even though I didn't know anything about them beyond their melodious and exotic-sounding names. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our visit to Zanzibar has been one of my favorite stops on this around-the-world adventure to more than 100 countries on all seven continents. Read about our time in Tanzania at wemarriedadventure.com.
Happy Valentine's Day! Look closely, this beautiful ♥️ is made of butterflies colored by the students of Westmont Elementary School in Martinez, GA.

Such a sweet school♥️ . #mastergardener #choosecolumbiacounty #valentinesday #butterflies #heart
The Sweetgum derives its common and botanical names from the gummy sap found under its bark. This resin is sometimes referred to as « liquid amber » because of its golden color. The tree attracts wildlife, providing cover, nesting sites, and food for songbirds and small mammals. #mastergardener #mysteryplant #mgnv #sweetgum #liquidambarstyraciflua

We’re getting rain—glorious rain!—this morning in north central Texas. A welcome respite from May’s unseasonal triple digit temperatures. 🌼 May your Monday be refreshed with all the benefits of an unexpected storm ... and none of the detriments. 🌼 PS-Lots of pollinators were visiting the Israel Prayer Garden yesterday, including this pretty little Checkered White. 🌼 #purewells #purewellsgarden . . . #mastergardener #masternaturalist #mytexasgarden #pollinatorgarden #texasgarden #texasgardening #texasnativeplants #txpollinators

Of all the photos I took at Chandor Gardens yesterday, this one is my favorite. I love the brilliant red, soft texture of the Turk's Cap juxtaposed by the rough tree bark with the soft sunshine highlighting both. Among all the grand fountains, formal beds, and architectural elements in the garden, this simple vignette held its own. ❤️ May your Friday be glorious in its own, beautiful, powerful, wonderful way!

Our Carolina Jessamine is already flowering beautifully!

Happy Monday, y'all! Signs of spring are emerging everywhere here in North Texas. I love the blooms on our Texas Mountain Laurel ... and so do the butterflies!
