In between grocery shopping (done!) and working on our taxes and financial aid forms (definitely not done), I just spent “a few minutes” poking around on Houzz. I love to look at everything but of course the gardens draw me in the most. Here’s a few highlights from my little break in the action:
A beautiful witch hazel tree, said to flower in winter and do well in zones 5-8. Hmmm….
Yellow-twigged dogwood, looks like a nice alternative to red-twigged…
Very interesting. Michael will love this, but it’s a stretch for me.
And finally, some sculpture…
That’s it! Time to get back to work~
- Who’s found Houzz? (thesalemgarden.com)
I have and I think we’re in trouble here!
Houzz.com is kind of a gathering place for anyone and anything related to design, decorating and gardening. It probably extends beyond that but I’m completely overwhelmed and I’m too lost to explain further.
You can browse rooms; both indoor and outdoor in any style or decorating interest area that you can think of. You can also create your own idea board and look at thousands of others ideas, including designers everywhere. It looks like you can post photos of your project and ask for input from others. You can collect ideas and post them to your idea book, or to pinterest or to facebook or to your blog/website.
I can easily share things that I find there, here.
Check out these photos of winter arrangements:
and fun garden markers
and beautiful rooms
You can then click on the photo and you’ll land right at the houzz page that I found it on.
Then you can create your own profile and idea board
and we can share, and discuss our projects and ideas
and I may never get another room vacuumed again.
This is so. much. fun!!!
Check it out and follow me and I’ll follow you!
and we’ll all eat take out tonight.
