Garden Ideas for Spring and A Little Bird Told Me Link Party #174

Welcome to...

You may have noticed that these weekly link parties are the only posts I've managed to put out lately. I'm wanting to change that very soon and get back into the swing of blogging regularly. There have been a lot of demands on my time during the last several weeks (friends visiting from out of town, two out of three of my kids celebrating a birthday, homeschooling, my son's therapy sessions, spring break, death of a family friend, eighth wedding anniversary...) and loads of side projects that I've been working on. The kids and I replanted our spring garden and I've been working on beautifying some of our outdoor spaces. As the weather has gotten warmer, it's been refreshing to retreat outdoors with no other concern than spending time with the kids and time in our home.

This little update actually leads us to the theme for this week's features--DIY ideas for your garden, porch, or patio.  Whether you're a beginner or expert gardener, these ideas are sure to give you plenty of inspiration for your own garden and patio areas! From planting tips to DIY garden decor, here are six posts that will help you make the most of your outdoor spaces this season. Grab your garden supplies and head outside to try some of these wonderful ideas. I'll meet you out there! ;)

1. Herb Garden Markers  / The Life of Jennifer Dawn
Whip up a set of stamped markers for your herbs or plants. You'll love how quick and easy these are to make.

2. DIY Moss Art / The Logbook
With a little moss, a chippy door, and a few other simple supplies, you can create an eye-catching, unique piece for your home.

3. Vegetable Garden Tips / The Seasoned Homemaker
Seeds or plants? What and when to plant? Leslie is sharing some invaluable advice on starting your own vegetable garden. This post will help you answer those common gardening questions.

4. Gold Geometric Planter / Old Time Pottery
Turn a candle holder into a stunning planter for your front porch by following the directions in this terrific tutorial.

5. Egg Planters / Dreams Factory
Learn to grow wheatgrass in pastel painted eggshells. These planters are both pretty and practical.

6. Rustic Succulent Centerpieces / Love, Create, Celebrate
