I want to head a different direction on the blog today. Something else I want to make but it's not food! I was inspired by the weather. We had a surprise snow last night and this is what I woke up to. While it's beautiful, it was also 9 degrees outside.
Instead of being frustrated this coming gardening season,
I am not a fan of cold weather at all. When the temperature drops below 55 degrees, I'm ready to hibernate.
To keep the winter blues away, I got on my computer and started looking at photos of gardens.
One of the problems I have in my garden is identifying seedlings. When I plant them, I'm sure I'll remember exactly what I've planted where. After a bit of time goes by, I tend to forget exactly what some plants are.
I decided to solve my problem with plant markers. Plant markers can be as simple or fancy as you'd like them to be. I found markers to buy and markers to make. Some are ingenious uses of objects that we'd normally throw away like wine corks, can lids and broken terra cotta pots. Others are more elegant markers made of tiles or vintage silverware.
I hope you enjoy looking at my inspiration board of plant markers. The ones that you can purchase are marked with a ($$). I've also marked the ones that have tutorials. Some are simply photos of markers that I thought were cute. If you have others that you've used to help identify your plants and decorate your gardens, I'd love to see them.
