Sprouts Friday Featured Favorite: What Vivi Did Next

This week's featured YouTube Gardener is somewhat new to YouTube, but you've seen Vivi on Sean's Allotment Garden. Now she's started her own channel "What Vivi Did Next."

Hiking Mt. Tom in Woodstock Vermont


Some scenes from our hike up Mt. Tom in Woodstock Vermont. It's a lovely hike, much of it on carriage roads with a beautiful view at the top of Woodstock village.

This weeks bouquets from the garden-Portland, OR

This week the summer annuals have begun to put on a spectacular show. This year I have been experimenting with growing a cutting garden. Among the flowers blooming are some old fashion favorites; cosmos, lavender, snapdragons, cleome and cosmos. I have been learning how to do simple hand tied bouquets by viewing videos like the one linked to this post.


More roses, lavender and snapdragons

Summer Flowers in Salem, Massachusetts 2017

It's been some time since I've posted pictures of flowers from Salem Massachusetts. It's been some time since I last visited, but when I do, I'm always impressed with the container plantings around Salem, Massachusetts. I took some snaps of some of my favorites to show our readers. I hope you get some inspiration for your own containers. I particularly love the many varieties of purple petunias. What's your favorite?
