{weekend inspiration}

There's something happy about dirty gardening gloves. They provoke a sense of accomplishment and pride...


I purchased one of the cutest pairs I've ever owned from Target - London Liberty Collection and they definitely inspired me this weekend. {On that note - I claim to be a marketer's dream!! If something is cute or appealing in any way, I pretty much want to buy it....even if it has no relation to my current interests or needs. Yes, that's right...a marketer's dream. Market it right, and I'll find a reason to "want" it.} Either way, when I saw these gloves, I knew I needed them in order to properly tend to my garden.

Here is some of what I did this weekend...





I've planted herbs in the past and tomatoes, but never lettuce, garlic, shallots, onions, strawberries and a few other treasures.  And, next weekend I plan to add a few more things. So -- here's hoping that I can keep things growing in this sunny, sunny, sunny weather!
Happy lundi (Monday)!

I want to grow raspberries this year and your post just reminded me I should get on that if it is going to happen. Good luck with your garden my dear!

littlebyrd - So great to re-connect with you. :) I love that you have the saaammme ones. Aren't they inspirational? Try the raspberries and let me know. I would LOVE to have a patch, but we don't own our place and from experience....they grow big!!!

oh nice! I'm a planter of basil and tomatoes, maybe a few other herbs, but wow- onions, garlic and shallots- genius. Are you growing those in pots as well? everything I do is in a container...
I've missed you :) Good to catch up.
