    so necessary when you live in a big city! I crave little bits of greenery. Now if only I could train my green thumb (which is null and void right now – thank god for succulents!)

    it's going to be great … love your snaps. i feel like spring is passing me by, but can always find new blooms at the farmer's market.

    I don't know the name of the ones in the second image but I have those and every year they come back and are absolutely beautiful. šŸ™‚

    This is inspiring, need to add some touches around my house.

    Gorgeous! I've been playing with my little urban garden and learning what works and what doesn't. Just last weekend I added a Burgundy Rubber Plant to our shaded outdoor area. This looks like a fun project!
