posies & plants...

Whatever would we do without the creative genius that is Martha Stewart and her talented staff? I spotted this "garden Rolodex" in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living and can't get over what a great idea it is! I always come across the prettiest flowers during the Summer season for pots on the balcony, but then forget their names the following year. Keeping all the plant tags in a collection like this is perfect for remembering, don't you think?

From Martha Stewart's "Good Things":

"Preempt your garden-center amnesia by creating a portable garden index on a key ring. Trim a plant tag at its base, place it photo side up on a shipping tag, and staple it near one end so you can easily read the flip side. Group the tags on a key ring, and make notes about where you sited the plants in the garden or pots."
