One of my favorite things to do in my downtime is garden. It’s the ultimate stress reliever, and allows me to feel productive while also enjoying the outdoors and getting a little exercise in, too.
It’s also one of my favorite ways to connect with our home and all the best parts of outdoor living. We’ve worked really hard to update our landscaping and backyard at our home in St. Louis, and also our lake cottage.
Did you see our new potting bench in the garage? It’s a dream come true and would make a wonderful gift for a special gardener in your life! Ever since we added it, I’ve been so excited, planting new lavender trees and so much more.
Of course, it’s always a challenge to see if we can circumvent the local deer and other critters who love our blooms almost as much we do! It’s been a pleasure to create a charming garden that gives us a sense of pride when we pull into the driveway.
