Trending on Gardenista: Green Eggs and Other Signs of Spring

April 20, 2014

The Gardenista crew spent this week reveling in their own (and their neighbor’s) blossoming backyards–and like the rest of us, discovering the power of pastels. Looking for cafe-style outdoor furniture, the perfect spring table decorations, and the sweetest smelling shade plant? Come see.

Above: “Of all the old rectories and vicarages in the Cotswolds, the one with garden by Dan Pearson is the standout,” writes Kendra (who happens to live in the vicinity). In this week’s Garden Visit, she shows us around the place and details Pearson’s relaxed formality, rose-framed front door and “slightly shaggy boxwoods,” included.

Above: Say spring with green eggs. Follow Erin’s easy DIY: Grow Your Own Wheat Grass Eggs–and consider using eggshells for your seedlings, too (all you have to do, Erin explains, is crush the shells when you plant them).
  • Just about right now, you’re likely starting to dream about eating meals outside. In 10 Easy Pieces, Janet sources Outdoor Dining Chairs in Shades of Spring.
  • Meet the flower that some say stole the show from Kate Middleton at the royal wedding. The week’s Field Guide presents a personality profile of the tiny but mighty (and shade loving) Lily of the Valley.
  • There was no keeping Michelle out of her neighbor’s brand new garden: she guides us on a Sneak Peek of Architect Barbara Chambers’ House in Mill Valley, CA (which Chambers designed in tandem with her plantings, so that every window presents a green and white view). How does Chambers’ lawn look so lush? You’ll be very surprised to hear.
