“Cultivation to the mind is as necessary as food to the body.”   ― Marcus Tullius Cicero


living willow structure

Found an awesome artist who takes willow weaving to a whole new level! The living fence in the last part of the picture would be so awesome as our gathering space out back!!  http://www.englishbasketrywillows.com


“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien

Gomphrena trufella tree forest

Gomphrena globosa: This cute little puff plant is actually quite interesting. Aside from being a butterfly attractor. The globes can be dried and used in tea for reducing stress, migraines and more. The petals can be moistened and placed under your eyes to reduce dark circles and firm up skin.  Who new??? I think this will be making it’s way into our garden design (especially since it’s drought tolerant).    Thank you to http://xericstyle.wordpress.com/ for an awesome picture.  🙂


May you know the SPiCE in life.
