Planning Your Garden With An Expert

How would you like to have a professional garden designer help you plan your garden? And by professional,  I don't mean just any professional,  but one whose garden designs have been profiled in cover stories by Southern Living and Atlanta Magazine’s Home and whose work has been photographed and highlighted in such notable media outlets as Better Homes & Gardens, Southern Living, and HGTV.

An avid plant collector and gardener herself, Sandra Jonas has been designing noteworthy landscapes for over 20 years, from residential gardens of all types to public parks, cemeteries, and restorations of historic sites.    Fortunately for all of us, she publishes the blog Recreating Eden in which she shares her extensive knowledge and experience.

Well, this nice and accomplished lady happens to be my friend.  I have never met her in person but we have exchanged enough emails and posts to make it officially so,  You see, she plants and I's kind of a symbiotic  relationship,  but it works.  Last year we were supposed to meet,  but illnesses in our respective families prevented us from doing so.  Not so this year, for I don't care how far I have to drive to meet this fabulous lady and see her potager.

If you want to join Sandra and me while we plant and cook, check out her latest post on preparing the soil for your vegetable garden.

Oh, and by the way, she used to be a model...a real knockout!

The dead flowers are still on the hydrangeas while the new growth has started to come in

Can't wait to get my hands on these...

    Julieta, what a lovely surprise. I am humbled, Thank you so much!
    I do hope following along with my blog encourages others to plant their own gardens.

    The recipes on both your blogs are exquisite! Thanks for linking to me and I look forward to some of the great dishes you will create with the produce from your garden.
