Easter House Flag reminds the world spring is near

511vwieI8uL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We have a spring holiday approaching and this flag will remind you and others that it's time to get outside and enjoy the yard, the garden, and the lush returning growth of a new growing season. These Brilliance Flags use a dye sublimation technique for the best quality and reversibility. Embroidery is added to the printed icons so that they practically jump off the flags. Simply brilliant! Size: 28 in. x 40 in.

Weeping Willow Tree is a classic landscape addition and easy to grow

41eB-oXdO8L._SL500_AA217_.jpg

Weeping willows are beautiful additions to a yard. They can be used as windbreaks; they are fast growing, and are cold hardy over most all the the country. I am thinking of one near the pond I am planning near my new house. They add a soft and gentle ambiance to any landscape and I remember them from my childhood. One of the main features is they are fast gowing so you don't have to wait forever for the tree to mature. This one when shipped is 3 or 4ft tall so it has a good start on growth and they are easy to grow so dig a hole, throw in some compost and mix it up with some fertilizer, steer manure would do and plant the tree! It should really take off in the spring!

Meyer Lemon Tree is easy to grow and produces great fruit

51t3CJLo5aL._SL500_AA280_.jpg


A Meyer lemon is a lovely plant and grows nicely in containers and outside in zones 8-11 Fragrant flowers produce thin skinned, juicy lemons year round. They are different than conventional lemons in that the taste is more sweeter, and less acid. The rind is thinner and more orangish in color than typical lemons. The tree is evergreen and needs full sun or a sunny room in the house. It grows to about 8 to 10 feet tall, or can be pruned to be shorter.

Hen-Feathers Boutique Thistle Thermometer adds an antique look to the garden decor

41cOH8c3gFL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

I'm in the market for a new thermometer. The old one is hanging on the locust tree in front of the cabin where it has been for 20 years. It's one that you use a magnet to return temperature so that you can see the change every day. I always forget to do that and I'm not even sure if the thermometer works. So I'm thinking of something simple that I don't have to manage. This thermometer by Hen-Feathers looks really cool. It has an antique look in hand cast copper and if I hang it on the tree outside the window, I can see the temperature easily.

Outdoor Fireplace with Copper Accents is perfect for outdoor fun

31S2TWNKFRL._SL500_AA271_.jpg

If you're tired of being couped up in the house, especially with all the relatives around, this outdoor fireplace would get everyone out of the house and bring a welcome change of scene. If the weather's very cold and snowy, the snowball fighters, sledders, and hikers can come and get warms while they tell about their adventures. Outdoors, at night, it gives a lovely light and a 360 degree view of the fire. A large, hinged access door makes it easy to throw another log on the fire. A heavy mesh surround ensures optimal warmth and safety--keeping sparks off the deck. A heavy grate is built to last and support plenty of wood for less refueling and a large cooking grate lets you warm up buns and snacks. This could save everyone's sanity and bring extra enjoyment during the holidays and all the rest of winter.

Tall Tulip Garden Lantern Feeder provides both food and entertainment

51tAD8FuzoL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

The lantern feeder holds 6 pounds of seeds and lets you see when the feed is getting low. My aunt who lived to be 92 loved this bird feeder. It gave her hours of enjoyment watching from her kitchen window and she only had to fill it once every three weeks. The birds came all winter long. This is a great gift for the bird lover or someone who delights in nature.
