Spring is the season of new life and loads of inspiration. I have an inspiring spring tour of my garden house plus a video of you.
For as long as I hoped, planned and designed my garden house, now that it is built, I have made up for that ten fold as far as time well spent. I’m grateful for it and all that, of course, but it has truly become my go-to place to think about ideas and just do everything associated with the true premise of the garden house. Pot and plant, entertain, and yes, escape. My respite.
I decorated the garden house for Christmas back in the beginning of November, and then when the frigid weather hit, I didn’t unlock the door and enter until late February. And if I could be truly honest for a moment, I was lost. As quickly as I relied on my peaceful spot, it was either snowed in or downright too cold to enter. A garden house, not a green house, there is no added warmth in the space. At least not yet.
But when that singular warmer day hit toward the end of February, I was in there, taking down the holiday decor and gearing up for my “garden house season” faster than I could blink an eye. I was puttering around, adding things to the potting bench that I had found and saved. A bar cart here, new planting pots there. A warm throw to drape over the chair. I would put one thing in one place, step back, analyze and then scootch it over a smidge only because I could afford to be so particular. That’s my mojo, for Pete’s sake. I added a few of my favorite gardening books that I had collected and read over the winter.
Inspiration for days. And books I can thumb through over and over.
Everyone has their favorite season and mine is certainly a close call between spring and fall, with summer coming in at a tight second. There’s so much new life in the springtime; so much promise. I thrive on that, and certainly put a lot of stock into it. All the puttering around in the garden house has brought me such joy.
And with that, I would so love for you to join me on a spring tour of my garden house. I’ve designed a lot of creative ideas for you to implement in your home or potting bench. Come sit with me and enjoy the tour.
