Located at 6355 NW 51st St Johnston, IA 50131, Piney Ridge Greenhouse has the BEST selection that I have found in Des Moines or Omaha.
I’ve tried to collect a list of all local plant sales coming up this spring. If you have another one, please mention it in the comments!
Hellebores or Lenten Roses are an exciting new flower for me. I suppose someday I’ll have discovered everything but not yet! Their gorgeous color palettes offer a magical secret display when other plants aren’t blooming.
We purchased a house late last year and moved in around the first of the year. One of my favorite rooms in the new house is our master bathroom with wood floors, a clawfoot tub, huge shower and two big windows.
Spring has fully arrived here on our farm. The weather has been unbelievable the last few weeks and we have all spent as much time as possible outside.
Last night I went to visit the tulip patch that I planted last fall at our old house. The lush green leaves mixed with the bright reds and pinks makes for quite a sight!

We found this little guy walking through one of our outbuildings on the farm. We have a pond and I assume he was out doing a little exploring.
Last year I dug up my 175+ dahlias and stored them over the winter. This is what they look like now in April.
On Saturday, April 1, the West Pottawattamie Master Gardeners teamed up with Nancy Crews (a Mills County Master Gardener) to make over 1,300 seedballs for Milkweed Matters.
