Green with Envy

You really can't get enough of John Granen's photographs...which is why I had to do another post about them. I'm not a gardener or a landscaper, but I LOVE plants. Hopefully one day I will learn more about plants for future awesome house with garden. For now I only know how to take care of one type of plant (I don't even know what it's called...I just know they don't die easily) so all my plants are the same! Therefore, these gardens make me green with envy.

Since it will be raining all weekend I can at least live vicariously through these images. Do you love plants too? If so, why not get a little dirty this weekend?

But, before you get dirt under your nails...don't forget to enter the UPrinting Giveaway....I'll be drawing names tonight! Happy weekend!

I love plants, but they don't love me! My husband says we should let our backyard go prairie. ;)

I want to be in that courtyard sitting by the blue doors sipping coffee or a glass of wine with those cafe lights strung before me (not sure they're from the same space, but this is my daydream, so it works!) Absolutely gorgeous.

I kill everything I touch but that hasn't stopped me from trying to have a pretty little garden like these(!) I especially love that second photo with the blue doors. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have breakfast in that spot on a warm day?

"yard work" is not my thing. a friend once said she knew this because I didn't say "garden"! lol.. I did try planting seeds last weekend and poted about them. I had a tiny little surprise when I went to peak today at my little tray. smile....

I love the photos! Enjoy your weekend! xoxo

I do love plants and have been dying to get in the garden ( even though I have no clue what I am doing!) but there is still too much snow on the ground. Those are such a lovely images--love the garden light strands and that blue door is perfect.

These are such lovely green photos. I really like the little round bulbs that are hanging. I would really love to put some in my backyard, it needs a bit of fairy magic at the moment!
