Pinterest Inspiration: June 2014

The heat is on full blast and the inspiration is coming in on override for outdoor spaces and gardening. There is nothing that soothes the soul more than being outside working in the dirt and chasing down gophers. Well, that last part may not be soothing but it has definitely been entertaining.

Just a quick note for those of you that have been emailing me about not receiving my posts via Feedburner. I am actively working on the problem and trying to get setup using mailchimp to take over the feed. My brain only functions so quick with technical stuff so patience with me please. I am hoping to have this solved by the end of the week.
Let's check out what has caught my eye for the month,

Galvanized Chicken Coop 

i am dying over these coops. i need one. do you have one you don't want? wood or galvanized? i have so many ideas for them and would love one for my shop for smalls.

 the red chair courtyard garden | gardenista

i have been to this store in hudson,ny. although it was raining the day we were there so couldn't go in the courtyard, it is not to be missed. the owner has exquisite taste.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cake

my style is very different than michael's of inspired by charm but his recipes are kick ass. i mean, seriously look at that cake. it is on my arsenal list.

Beautiful display of landscaping with evergreens.

(Country Gardens Magazine)

i need to look at the sources in this magazine to find the name of that tall purple plant. i love it for the height.

private and very comfy

lovely country and comfortable bedroom. time to grab a book and just snuggle down.

Rustic Farmhouse: The story of a cupboard

i love love this cupboard with ironstone. so original and this lady lives close to me.

Have a great day everyone.

We are back to work today and are listening to the sounds of fireworks right now as I finish this as everyone seems to be on a Canada Day *boom* frenzy. Ah, the sounds of summer livin'!



  1. The purple plant is Joe Pye Weed. Love the photos for inspiration.

  2. Ha ha, Heidi beat me to it...Joe Pye weed, it grows and grows, but it's easy to control!
    Your blog is wonderful, I look forward to reading your posts!!

  3. I so enjoyed reading this post. I will be back for more! Thanks!

  4. Great post, I love the pictures, you have some very nice décor ideas, may have to steal some of those...

  5. Love this post.... deep rose shrub is joe pye; purple flower looks to be veronica.

  6. PURPLE FLOWER - in the forefront appears to be one of two perennials... Veronica 'Speedwell' or Salvia. When you research be sure to look for the perennial versions and the heights. Most of these will grow if the soils and other conditions are optimum without much difficulty. I absolutely LOVE this photo of these GIANT SPECIMENS... I have the JOE PYE WEED, CARADONNA SALVIA (shorter with burgundy stems and more indigo in flower coloration} Adding more JOE PYE WEED in another perennial bed this year. Another MUST DO TIP - When mixing the soils and digging the holes besure to ADD in a good brand of BONE MEAL to the holes. MIX WELL and don't believe the VERMIN will come theory.

  7. purple spiky flower is Anise Hyssop :)


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
