Garden inspiration

We’re starting to work on some plans for our backyard–a few new plants arrived Tuesday (we planted peach and nectarine trees!) and I’m looking forward to seeing it begin to take shape.

I’ve been collecting some favorite tear-sheets from sources like Martha Stewart Living (above) and Sunset Magazine. I especially love how all of the drought-tolerant grasses glow in that afternoon light. I’ll be sure and share some before-and-afters in progress photos once I have some.

What is everyone doing this weekend? I can’t believe it’s March!

Here are some favorite links lately:
