Garden Photo of the Week
This week’s photo is from my garden. We’re in the middle of summer here, yet I see many signs of fall sneaking its way in. The birds are already devouring several of the sunflowers and the air has a slight autumn chill to it. I shall hang onto summer with all my might.
Let’s dig in to this week’s web harvest.
Last week I shared some clever solutions to garden problems where the answer is probably sitting in your junk drawer.
Here’s some more at my blog at eBay where I am a collaborator:
Also, for those of you who want the gardening season to carry on beyond summer (as it should):
- Wendy B. shared on Hometalk this delightful fairy house created from a tree stump.
- Sarah of Sadie Seasongoods turned a clock into a birdhouse. So the birds are never late. Okay, I made that last part up.
- Stephanie of Garden Therapy gets the old silver out of storage and makes charming planters. If it will never be used otherwise, plant it!
- Kathy of Petticoat Junktion has a great repurpose for those not-so-good old wooden birdfeeders.
- Heather of Green Eggs & Goats turned some free pallet wood into funky garden trellis.
- Lisa a.k.a. The Houseplant Guru walks us through the secrets to successfully growing African violets.
- Melissa the Empress of Dirt (that’s me, silly) shares 30 flower seeds you can sow in the fall. If you love spring bling, hop to it.
- Lynne of Sensible Gardening and Living makes drying fresh herbs seem totally do-able.
- Emily of Pass the Pistil has made a profound declaration. She says this is the ‘best ever’ blueberry pie. We’ll see about that.
