Gardens – Landscape Ideas for Both the Pro and the Novice
I love beautiful landscapes and have a deep regard for people who crate interesting gardens. While I can visualize the end product in an interior space, I am completely blinded when I step outside and try to imagine exterior gardens projects. And adding insult to injury, my nurturing skills are not what you’d call stellar. Recently I killed the inhabitants of two 4″ x 6″ succulent terrarium gardens. They asked for nothing more than a mist of water once a week and indirect sunlight. And yet I failed.
But a girl can dream…..
Here are some great ideas for the professional as well as the novice. As long as it isn’t me!

Wisteria is a work of art on its own. Makes me long for mint juleps in the shade
Stunning Natural Color!

How fun is this? Love the charm and the burst of color.
Now this is something I can actually do. I have an antique shopping cart that is planted with ferns every spring. It’s a great container garden idea.

So this piece of garden art has 3 things I’m obsessed with; succulents, mannequin heads and Medussa. I really want to try this. Photo from Mannequin Madness.
ok, I know this seems a little weird but I really do have a thing for old baby dolls and baby doll heads. And who couldn’t use a little giggle? Anyone who tries this, please send me some pics. Photo from Buzzfeed
