Fresh Cut

Nothing beats the smell and beauty of freshly cut flowers, especially when they came from your own garden.

Not long ago people dedicated a portion of their lawn for this purpose. Recently this trend has been making a come back and rightly so; working in a garden relieves stress, invigorates the mind, and best of all that sweet fragrance has been shown to increase the release of chemicals in the brain associated with feeling happy.

All in all having a flower garden,as ex-con Martha Stewart would say, “is a good thing”.

About Pepper

Being someone who is actively searching for ways to make what I have better I thought it would be useful to share my talents and discoveries with anyone who is interested. So much of what I do is made from things that are easy to access and are perfect projects to spice up a weekend. In the words of Bernice Fitz-Gibbens "Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there." I hope that you will join me each weekend for a little inspiration and fun.
