From Planning to Planting, and from Harvest to Table.

Happy New Year!!!!!

Here in Oak Lawn, Winter has finally settled in and made itself at home. So, not much to do outside beside shoveling when it snows. It has been raining more than snowing here, which is fine for the gardens but doesn’t do much for your mood. So if you need a mood boost and  way to get your family to put down the electronics, try this pretty easy recipe for homemade brownies which I have adapted from the Bakers Secret one bowl brownie recipe.  They’re seriously soft and gooey, super chocolatey, and gluten-free.  Click on the Charmed Eats (aka Recipes) tab for the recipe and instructions.  And let me know what you think.

I received my certification as a Landscape Designer from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois and I received my horticulture education through classes at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois and through the master gardener program at Univ of Illinois Extension. In my designs, I love mixing veggies and herbs with native perennials and flowering bushes as you can see from the pictures of my own yard. I love creating gardens for people who like to garden, not just installing traditional landscaping, but actually creating gardens that the homeowner connects to personally. I love that my clients who thought they couldn't grow anything now have green thumbs, because all it takes is the right plant in the right site. And I really love that my clients become my friends in the process of creating their gardens.
