Jodie Jackson's pollinator on a coneflower
Erica Pefferman's of gnome success - gray stone feet sticking out from a floor-touching-beard and moustache, a green moss covered hat that blends into lush green succulents blooming out of the hat.

I love gnomes! I got this cute little guy at Superior Garden, but my puppy quickly played with him like a toy breaking his hat. I was going to throw him away, but my daughter convinced me to make him into a planter. I am so glad I did! He’s so cute.

Jordan Watts' anole on her window sill.

These green anoles hang out along my windowsill and like to visit me while I’m working!

Jodie Jackson's flora and doggo.
Jodie Jackson's big fluffy bee (pollinator) on a coneflower.

Our backyard is a peaceful refuge. Just add colorful annuals for sun and shade, hardy perennials (LOVE purple prairie coneflowers and African daisies), busy little pollinators, and a teacup Maltese.

Charles Bruce's Mystery Flower

Floral Mystery: Charles Bruce, director of sales, sent us a random flower and we are not sure if he had anything to do with its growth, or if he pulled it from Getty images.

Kim Ambra's Pig of Despair

Well, this is embarrassing…

Knowing that I have zero green thumb, our publisher and my dear friend Erica, bought me this succulent in the cutest pig planter, with promises that it is nearly impossible to kill it. We can all see how this has turned out. This lil’ piggy has definitely seen better days. 

– Kim Ambra, Editor-in-Chief
