Bring on the green.....and a green thumb giveaway!

Good Thursday morning to you!  One of my favorite things, especially this time of year is gardening, watching everything turn from a pale dull brown to a rich vivid green. Of course normally in April, we are getting our gardening gloves out, and hitting our local nurseries on a weekly basis. Don't know about you but over here we are still having winter like weather....mother nature are you listening? Assuming spring really is anything more exciting than seeing a simple long stalk start to bloom into something wonderful, floral and fragrant? I think not! I love it and except for the potential poison ivy risk (for those of use who are allergic like me), nothing can keep me away.

I have a particular obsession with white flowers against manicured boxwood, have for years and my online album is chock full of reasons why this combination works. So today, we are taking a look at all the beautiful ways to grow a beautiful lawn/garden and then the lowdown on a wonderful gardening gloves giveaway courtesy of   Angela's Garden, home to some of the prettiest gardening items  I have ever come across.  So its a double treat today. How about you? Do you have a green thumb or maybe an "aspiring" green thumb?
