August’s Desktop Calendar is Here!

Thank you to everyone who emailed to say you’d missed decorating your desktop with these desktop calendars. It means a lot! August’s calendar comes from the Red Oak Lavender Farm here in north Georgia, When experts said lavender couldn’t be grown in Georgia, these folks were determined to do it. In spite of the limitations caused by our climate, Georgians can stroll through fragrant lavender fields and on this Dahlonega farm. They grow a variety of flowers and sell potted plants, fresh flowers,...

Say Hello to July’s Desktop Calendar!

Are there specific flowers or flowering bushes that you consider essential to your garden? That’s how I feel about gardenias! We had them at two of our last three homes and now it seems we have eight large bushes outside our bedroom windows and three of the dwarf variety in front of our house. I thought we’d see the gardenias from our new house in a summer calendar, but I almost missed them! It felt like we went from dozens of gorgeous blooms to a few stragglers in no time. I know it was weeks,...

Desktop Calendars are Back: Here’s June!

If you have dressed up your desktop with my calendars in the past and wondered what happened, welcome back and thank you for grace! We sold our house in November and moved in December and I only recently fired up the old 27″ iMac that I use for photo editing and making these calendars. To be honest, I didn’t know if it had any life left and I was afraid to find out. It’s slow as Christmas, as my mom used to say, but still hanging in there. Thanks for hanging in there with me too! Watching our n...

Studio Ghibli Animated Films High Quality Stills

Just earlier this year in September Studio Ghibli graciously released a huge collection of hi-quality stills from some of their latest films like When Marnie Was There, The Wind Rises, Princess Kaguya, From Up On Poppy Hill and more, with some 400 images in total. Now I’m sure most of us have already seen these films, and the images released are nothing new in particular, but we can never quite enjoy them at our own time when actually watching the films, but with the release of these stills w...

Spruce Up Your Desktop with October’s Desktop Calendar

Hooray for Fall! I’m so excited October is finally here. Normally it would still be hot here in Georgia, but recent hurricanes sent us rainy days and cooler temperatures. I still expect us to top 90° a few more times. Bryan and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this month and it feels like the perfect time of year. Sometimes he takes off work and we spend the day in the north Georgia mountains. I have two simple objectives: good barbecue and a caramel apple. Sometimes we find a fall festival ...

Garden of ‘Eden’: A New Collection by Lindsey Adelman for Calico Wallpaper

If Only It Were Scratch & Sniff: August’s Desktop Calendar

Do you ever wish you could just hit the pause button? Maybe that sounds unusual in the middle of a global pandemic, but it’s how I feel lately. Life is spinning by so fast it makes me dizzy. Our youngest son had his high school graduation ceremony Saturday. I’m so proud of him and grateful for the hard work of those who finally were able to make it happen; it wasn’t easy. We’ve become so dazed and confused sometimes it’s hard to snap out of it and do normal things. We’ve got one month with him ...

Decorate Your July Desktop!

I had the marketing call for my new book It All Began in a Garden last week and I was a little nervous. {You’re going to FLIP over the pre-order bonuses!!} COVID threw life into a tailspin—we all get that—but I imagined I’d done everything all wrong already. (Is this more of an Enneagram 3 thing or does everyone put this much pressure on themselves?)? I grabbed my camera and walked around the yard photographing flowers, and then I grabbed my macro lens and did it all over again. I ne...
