My family was all abuzz over this article in Sunset magazine over Easter. Check out these talented gardeners at their nursery in Encinitas, CA at http://www.barrelsandbranches.com/site/. The girls grew up in the same area as I did and look to be about my age- it's inspiring to see girls my age doing something so fun and successful with gardening.
I love the decorative ideas for the garden. I actually do have some of that gorgeous blue glass slag I purchased at Lotusland.
I also absolutely love the idea of the window boxes as shelves for plants on the fence. I would love to try this in my yard but our fence is so old and haggard I'm afraid it couldn't hold the weight.
