I love January – it’s brrrr cold outside and there are no garden chores – maybe just planning for a beautiful Spring. I did turn in all the Spring flower orders to our wonderful grower…hard to believe they will start seedlings this month.
As a longtime garden designer, and plant lover I have created a forum to blog all things garden. Over the years one of my favorite past times is helping people become better gardeners. No one is born as a good gardener, but... with a few simple principles in mind, anyone can create and foster a wonderful garden and feel very successful in their endeavors. The benefits are huge and result in a more beautiful and integrated "home and garden" aesthetic and literally become a part of your lifestyle. Gardeners love to share experiences, ideas and plants.

Meet Terry Carlson
I was born into a nomadic family and moved to and from every corner of the U.S. from the time I was 3 years old. Some of my earliest memories are helping my mother transform a house into a home – working with what we had and by tapping into our inner creative, we were able to make our homes beautiful with little effort and no time at all.
Today, I love working with our clients to evolve their interiors as my husband and I build and renovate their homes. Creating comfortable and timeless interiors that are appropriate to the architecture and style of the home and the personality of our clients is a joy. Living with a Swede, I am sometimes chided about the American view on what we think Swedish, English and French design looks like. Working with my husband Anders on the design of custom one-of-a-kind homes and interiors keeps me busy and challenged – and my inner creative fulfilled and happy – Join me in finding your inner creative through this design blog.
