Watch your kitchen come alive with the cool color of Jade Green.

From Wikipedia

Jade is a saturated, slightly bluish green. The name comes from the gemstone called jade, although the stone varies widely in hue.

In Chinese culture, if one wishes to express one’s love for someone, one gives them something made of the gemstone jade or an object that is colored jade.

  Spring is in full bloom all around here in Connecticut and New York.  Everyday it’s getting “greener” and more colorful – Yeah!  The only sad part for me during Spring time is, once again, being reminded that I do not have a “green thumb“.  My brother inherited the gardening skills in our family.

But OH! – how wonderful the internet is. 

  • HOME DEPOT has a Garden Club, Tips on Landscaping, Watering Wisdom and Container Gardening.
  • LOWE’S has Creative Ideas for Outdoor Living, Plant and Wildlife, Growing Zones and Eco-Friendly Living.
  • HGTV has information on Butterfly Gardening, Rain Barrels: Save on Your Water Bill! and for ME – Advice for ALL – THUMBS Gardeners!


 So to all my fellow “All – Thumbs Gardeners” – Don’t fret, check out these great sites with loads of information.  And let me know which site you found most helpful.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
