What really made it so unusual was that there were lots of big old trees that were already there, above the tree layer he planted. Gave the garden the sense of age most of us can't achieve in our lifetime.

I keep reminding myself that organizing the space and reading the unread garden books on the shelves is OK. I don't have to be making something for me to feel like I'm getting something done. I am a list maker and if I can't cross something off, I always feel like I must be wasting my time! Very bad habit.

Having a dedicated studio space is making it much easier to finish projects that have been hanging around forever. Working on a long-term project to write a book about our garden. A "Blurb" book but a big, hardcover, lots of pix book for me. I joke that it will be something that I can read in the "home," but it is not really that much of a joke.

None of my grassy-looking plants are true grasses. I have not had much luck with them either.

I am so used to all the stones and hardscaping that it is nice to have someone point it out, so I look at it with fresh eyes. Most of that is Mark's labor and his great eye for design.

I have some decent swaths of low maintenance plants, but I am always a little hesitant to try to create an "effect." It's like planting pairs of things; one is always going to be bigger or look better than the other. So I always worry about whether I have a mess of plants rather than a river.

The Bloom family gardens are amazing. The have tons of space and experience — what more does one want in one's garden!

Ha! 27 here as well so it feels warm. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 40. I wish I could ignore the weather but I continually obsess about it.

Our temps are going up, too. But no daffs yet, alas

I've been amazed at the prickly stuff the rabbits eat, like barberries.

We needed this snow in December to protect the plants before we started having bitter cold temps. Hope it's not too late to help.

That does seem to happen often for the Expo, though this is the time of year when we are desperate to see garden images, plants etc. so you wouldn't want it any later.

I thought it was probably a Magnolia leaf but could not decide where I might have picked it up. I figured if I could remember the scene of the crime, it would help me remember what the plant was. Of course, I may have just picked them up locally.

Now I just have to actually do something!

I always think I will draw these items but never have. Now I am thinking I could use some of them as drawing tools with ink. But you are the one who actually does draw and paint and send people lovely cards! I am hoping that I will get back to doing garden art now that I have a dedicated space.

I am a bit of a cookbook junkie. I also have a box of 3 x 5 cards with family recipes and a couple of three-ring binders with things I've clipped or printed out over the years. Trying to weed out things I've never made and will never make, but it's barely made a dent in the total.

I've always lived where there is serious winter weather, so I am used to it. But these days nothing is quite the way it used to be. There is no normal anymore.

When my husband and I designed the garden at our first house we were going to put up a lattice wall for climbers. Then winter came and we realized the wall was where we had to pile snow from the driveway. Now we know to think about that from the beginning.

I got my bowl online from the Met Museum shop, a repro of an antique item. I don't think I've ever seen an old one to buy.

I went online to listen to this particular owl and you would never recognize it as an owl.

I am hoping that this cold means no snow. Then I would not be so frustrated with such chilly temps. I don't always look but when Mark told me the early morning temp. it's made me go look every couple of hours.

I just need to remember to buy some bulbs in the fall to put in there. I also have blue glass bulb vases for Hyacinths that I rarely remember to use.
