Spring has really sprung and I'm itching to get my hands into the cool dirt and earth. We have a lovely little yard in our new home and I plan on filling it with herbs, flowers and veggies to enjoy all summer long.
Gardening is more than planting, with careful thought, your garden can be a beautiful design feature. I love seeing brightly colored blooms in pretty little pots as I drive past my neighboors homes.
Here are some sweet, fun accessories to make your garden grow!
This sweet little necklace would be perfect for your favorite gardener (or black thumb).

A sturdy basket or bucket is perfect for gathering tools.

And after a long day in the dirt, be sure to nourish your hands.

While I do have space outside to grow, many of us live in tiny aparments on in cities with limited yard space. Woollypockets are living walls, perfect for those with limited space, for herbs at your fingertips in the kitchen, or just dramatic arrangements. You should know I'm in love with these; they're so versatile!
Tell me that you wouldn't want that in your kitchen? They're too cute.
A good set of tools is also a must and I've snagged the adorable Liberty of London Set from Target.

I hope this post inspires some of you to start a garden this spring; even one pot of flowers on your doorstep can make a world of difference! Tell me what it is that you plan on planting this year? What's your favorite bloom?
