Style Scouting: Vol. 83

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

This week you could see nature waking up all around SC – including the start of pollen season. I have been enjoying getting outside in the yard. Then just as I was getting ready to celebrate a return to the garden… the cold – actually, the freezing front came in.

It got down to 22 degrees here last night and scary winds all day yesterday and into the night. Crazy weather for sure!!!

Ed and I had to go out and late yesterday to cover a few veggies like these collard greens we planted.

It will be warming up again and hopefully, at least here in the southeastern part of the country, spring will truly arrive – although with the rain and winds we had, plus the freeze, I wonder if pollen season will be lessened.

You probably already did this, but don’t forget to “spring forward” your clocks today. :-)

  1. You must truly be surrounded by pine trees! I have mostly hard woods. Enjoyed your house show case. Very difficult week for me with my arm.

      Hi Nancy – Yes, the property around my house is framed in pine trees. I love them as they provide a dabbled shade in the hot summer, but the downside is they shed pinecones by the hundreds. Ed and I look at the task of picking them up from the yard before we cut the lawn as exercise. :-) Sorry to hear your arm is giving you problems. I hope you have a better week this week. Take Care.

  2. I did order grow bags this year and I’m looking forward to trying them as I have clay. (Not mentioned, but it’s important to know if you have determinate vs indeterminate potatoes as there are differences in planting.)
    With a very inexpensive shredder your pine ones would give you unlimited mulch!

      Hi Carol – Thanks for the tip about the potato type. I didn’t know this. And for the tip about the pine cone shredders. I have seen them – they are pretty cool, but the pinecones still have to be picked up to do that and before we cut the grass each week. We place our weekly haul out as yard waste every week and our town picks them up to make into mulch. Pine straw that falls from the trees just as much or more than the pinecones is what we use as mulch as it covers everything. When I need to place mulch around something, I go rake a spot in the yard to gather some. I hope you have a banner potato growing season.

  3. I loved the articles on painting accessories and have several on hand that I’m going to try for sure! Also the use of interior windows are beautiful!!! Thank you.

  4. Great links…thank you for reminding me about Rice Krispie treats! I think you need to start selling your pine cones online 💰😆
