Not Sure I would call this working...

I had no idea how fast time had flown until I saw that my last blog post was over a year ago. It went by so fast. I went to work at a job that I absolutely loved and then walked out over a matter of principal and didn't look back or think twice at least until the next payment was due on my new little car.  After a few weeks,  I decided I knew I had to go to work, but I really just want to plant plants and make pretty containers and crafty things.
My projects this week have been string gardens.

 I have watched tutorials on the web and they are so easy to make, once you start you just can't stop. If this is work, I think I could easily become a workaholic. I found some miniature orchids on sale and mixed those with tricolor sedum and a very fragile looking rosary vine. I mixed some ferns with pink splash polka dot plants and variegated english ivy. Geraniums, petunias, million bells, there are so many varieties to choose from , the possibilities are endless. I found a great tutorial here.

Try one out today. You will be surprised at how fun and easy they can be.
