Around here | DIY herb garden

So I got this super fun vintage pant stand from my cousin and I was thinking of things to do with it, like what to plant? Then it hit me, so easy, herbs! There are 5 little pots and I picked the 5 herbs I used most in cooking. There is, basil, sage, parsley and dill. Now I can walk out to my porch and pick fresh herbs! So easy! :D

Around here | Natalie's Garden & Green House

This past Monday my mom took me to a little find in the country between Oregon and Madison. It was a sweet little place called Natalie's Garden & Green House. I have been looking for flowers for my front porch hanging baskets as well as some herbs. I instantly found what I was looking for!
I loved the bright color and selection of hanging plants as well as the prices! Perfection! 
She also had a lot of vegetable starter plants, herbs and grasses.
The green houses are small and homey, I loved that I could see her laundry hanging on the line and the gorgeous farm house in the distance. You can tell she really loves what she does and she is sweet as pie!

Around here | Sunday at the dog park

The weather was glorious yesterday (in the afternoon, post the rain). We took the doggy to the park and did several laps! The beach is my favorite place to park and hang out and watch the dogs play!
We are still trying to get Blitz to go into the water, so far he only goes to his elbows. But we have a long summer... we'll get him all wet I'm sure!
