In January I talked about the perennial of the year for 2015: Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo’. I love that plant then and I love it now. And it’s still on any list of easy-to-grow plants that I’d recommend for just about any garden.
In February, I prepped for seed-starting season by interviewing Renee Shepherd of Renee’s Garden Seeds. She is a font of knowledge on everything from garden trends and the best way to grow vegetables.
I also told you about the one vegetable that everyone should grow.
April saw us finishing up the biggest DIY project of the year: the garage pergola. We have gotten a ton of compliments on it and I really love it.
In June I found myself at one of my favorite blogger’s gardens and it was so great to see it in person after feeling like I know it from reading Linda’s blog. And meeting an online friend in person is always a great time.
It’s becoming a bit of a July tradition for me to visit the great garden at the Hotel Iroquois on Mackinac Island. Every year it’s different and it’s always fun to see it.
2015 will be forever known as the year I really fell in love with sweet peas and in August I shared a little info about how I grew them.
In September I shared four things to do in your garden to ensure a better garden next year.
October was when I discovered how helpful Google Earth can be in identifying design issues in your garden. I’m still working on a plan to fix the issues I identified then.
It was finally time to go back inside in November and took on a pretty gross cleaning project that made such a difference: cleaning the fireplace surround.
And suddenly it was December and once I got over how quickly the year flew by, I shared my tips for the real person’s guide to renovating.
And here we are, minutes away from 2016. I look forward to another chance to right my gardening wrongs, try out exciting new projects and get to know you wonderful people. 2015 was pretty darn great, so let the fun continue in 2016.
Happy new year to all you wonderful people out there! I truly appreciate you spending a little bit of your day here.
