My favorite project is the Woodland Felt Ornaments which remind me of some handmade tree ornaments we had when I was a kid.

This book is chock full of ideas for both individual plants and combinations that work well in a meadow garden. There are many grasses, both flowering and not, as well as other plants common to meadows. Many of these plants can be used in a suburban home landscape, even if you don't have room for what feels like a whole meadow. The photographs of existing meadow gardens are also beautiful and inspirational.
Well, hockey fans, we have made it to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Wasn't really sure we would get there, based on how the Red Wings played at the end of the season, but very glad to see it happened. In other hockey news, the Pittsburgh Penguins have also raced into Round 2 of the Playoffs. Will these two teams meet up in the finals? I know that my nails will be bitten off in anticipation. Check out the Red Wings and Penguins websites for updates and tickets! Go Peng-wings! (I do have divided loyalites, after all!)
