Gardening Home

Elka at CasaSugar shows you how to add a little love around the outside of your home by adding a heart-shaped garden patch. She picked up the heart-shaped frame at the flea market and was immediately inspired.

I used Isotoma, or Blue Star Creeper, for the ground cover in the heart, and in the middle I added a few antique pink and dark purple violas.

I added some shredded cedar to the exterior to keep the look tidy.
