Grab Ideas for Your Garden
If you are like me, your favorite place to find inspiration for the garden is in real-life gardens much like our own. These photos come from local garden tours and my own garden.
It’s an overused cliché to say, it’s all about the journey and not the destination, but perhaps because it’s true. Same goes for gardening. While we love those moments when the garden comes together and perfect combinations of plants are in bloom, really, it’s the whole natural world that matters and how it can bring us so much inner contentment if we allow it.
I share idea galleries like this one to simply ignite the spark that will encourage you to explore the natural world around you, dig in, get your hands dirty, and see what grows. It doesn’t matter if it’s some pots on a windowsill or patio, or a raised bed in community garden or allotment. Just dig in and enjoy.

You can find giant teacup planters here on Amazon. Also watch yard sales: often they are given as prank gifts to coffee drinkers.
