A tropical-themed living wall in Calgary’s Devonian Gardens
woohoo to Boomdee. She herslef is very generous and has organized many give aways ( I was on the receiving end on one of them!) So I am very happy this lovely girl won a price herself!!!
It’s a great book – I hope she’ll enjoy it! 🙂
❤ oh you are dear x
Holy toledo ! What a beautiful way to end the weekend. Thank you so kindly Sheryl. I will look forward to it ! We worked in the yard all day yesterday. I planted all the annuals I went crazy for at Wallish’s Greenhouse. A local favourite of mine. Such a busy time but we wait so long thru winter….it’s all hands on deck. Cheers!
Congratulations!!! The book is on its way to you! 🙂
This is truly the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it? You’re way ahead of me…I still haven’t done much planting. Lots of bed preparation so maybe I’ll get to actually putting some plants in this weekend. Happy gardening!
The weather is so beautiful at this time of year for working in the yard. Sunny and Mild with a breeze, have fun!
Woo Hoo!!! I’m so delighted Boomdeeadda won!!! She will make good use of it it, I’m sure.
My book collection will never catch up to yours Marlene 😀
Mine is an obsession. 🙂 I’m always afraid if I don’t get the book now, it won’t be there when I want to read it. It’s like fabric. They make just so many bolts that are distributed and when they are gone, no more to be found. Hugs.
Say no more, HA ! I have the same thing going on with paper 😀 I have a bit more than I’ll ever use but it’s soooo pretty, I can’t resist xoxox
Did you see the paper boxes we made on my retreat post? I think the paper was 12×12.
OH wonderful! If anyone can work magic with a living wall, it will be Boomdee. 🙂
So true! 🙂
We have a living wall in our airport baggage claim area. It’s very restful.
That’s a fantastic place to have a living wall! I haven’t seen too many of them in public spaces here yet – but I think that will change.
I hope we get more here, too.
So sweet to say, thank you 😀 The bar has been set! LOL
I love the idea of a living wall, and I have wondered about “vertical gardening” for Calgary, but I don’t think I am going to have time too get it organized this year!
Are you planning a big trip this summer? I always enjoy reading about and seeing all the photos from your travels! 🙂
Australia for a couple of weeks in June, other than that we will be staying close to home. I started a new full time job, exciting new challenges, so the spare time I have will go to photography. I am hoping to see more of the parks and festivals around town!
Sounds like you have some wonderful things going on right now! 🙂
Congrat Boomdee…I’ll have it after you….hehe
Thank you Jean, maybe we could share it around the world? Hmmmmm that might be fun.
It would be..
Congratulations to Boomdee! We have a living wall in Norwich, the city near to where we live. It looks good all year round. A local brewery has also had a new building covered in a green roof which also looks fabulous.
I think it is absolutely wonderful that more and more green roofs and living walls are cropping up everywhere – I hope it’s a trend that continues! A practical and beautiful way to use space!
