So I decided last year that I should grow a flowering vine on my balcony railing, but I never did it. This year, I’m a new and improved gardener! I’ve got goals and 150 square feet of gardening space, a veritable force of nature! Yeah, whatever. But I did score some morning glory (Ipomoea tricolor) […]

I’m loving being in the Bay area this week at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show–it’s my second time to the show, and it’s such an exciting week seeing the display gardens and getting caught up with friends!
