d*s sundays in the garden!
this week's garden section is especially cheerful today because i'd been trying to find out the name of these gorgeous flowers i saw for days and finally figured it out (thanks to my mom and martha stewart)- ranunculus! i'm in love with the shape and color- just so cute [photo from martha's site]. martha had a bouquet segment on her show this week and was working with gorgeous bunches of them- so, so pretty. anyway, back to the garden. i've been trend happy lately and i thought it might be fun to check out what sort of trend guides for the garden there were, so i've gathered some great resources below for figuring out what's going to be hot in the garden for 2006. in addition, there are some great new gardening planters and accessories below, so, have fun and feel free to send pics of your garden as they start to sprout this season- i hope to showcase the brightest and the most colorful in a special d*s reader garden section...happy sunday!
