March Garden Update

When I originally started this blog,
it was mainly about documenting my garden.
I wanted to be able to look back to see how things grew.

I've only posted about my garden a few times recently.
You can read the most recent post here.
Or one from last Fall (yes that long ago!!) here.

Over time, my blog has evolved quite a bit.
Sadly, the garden posts got less and less frequent.
But that's hopefully changing starting today!!!

I recently decided to implement something new on my blog.
I will be posting about certain topics at specific times each month.
And every LAST DAY of the month will be about the garden.

So without saying much more - here is March's Garden Update!!

Let me start of with my AWESOME herb garden!
I recently did a DIY project and am so happy with the outcome.
Check back very soon for a complete post all about the chalkboard pots.

This jalapeno plant is going strong.
It survived the little winter that Southern California had
and already has a bunch of new growth!

My lemon tree!
I'm SO excited for the first one.
And I think I'm going to get to pick it any day now.

And can we talk about all the new growth?
C'monnnnnnnnnnnnn lemon!!!!

Oh hello GIANT Christmas tree!

Flowers that currently only have buds, no actual flowers.

More flowers with just buds.

Exciting update, I know!

Oh yay - actual flowers finally!!!
Poppies, Snap Dragons and Marigolds.

Oh and even MORE flowers!!!

Like I said at the beginning of this post, 
I will be blogging about garden updates 
every last day of each month.

It may not be a complete update each month,
but it will be about something in the garden.
So keep coming back to see what I have growing.


  1. Your herbs look adorable in those matching pots! Home-grown lemons are da best!
    Love the combination of yellow, white and blue you have there.
    Enjoy watching everything pop up!

    1. Hi Daisy.

      Thanks so much! :) I can't wait for the first home-grown lemon! Make sure you check back in the next few weeks for a full post on the herb garden pots!

  2. That looks great, and I am in love with the chalkboard paint pots. I want some of my very own! My patio has turquoise decor, they would fit perfectly. I am sitting here in Indiana feeling very envious of your little garden, and especially the lemon tree.

    1. Hi Nikki! You should make your own. They were pretty simple and I'll be posting a step by step blog about them VERY soon! Please check back for that. :)

  3. What a great idea to have chalkboard paint on your pots! Love this! Really love all your lovely herbs and flowers... I am impatiently waiting here to be able to get my garden going, lol!

    1. Thanks so much! Hope you're able to plant something soon! :)

  4. What a beautiful variety you have and I love that you do this in pots! It shows you don't need to live in the country to have a garden! :) Thank you for sharing this inspiration on the Art of Home-Making Mondays!

    1. Thank you, Jes! :) It can be challenging at times, but I've learned what works and what doesn't over the years!
