Create some cool for yourself
We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve to help overcome the Summer heat
Welcome to the Department of Mind Over Matter. Today we’re trying to convince ourselves it’s not THAT hot outside. Already.
Here in Texas, a pleasant summer garden has to have more than heat-tolerant plants. You have to modify the outdoor-living atmosphere itself. Thankfully, that’s not hard to do. Here are some tricks to make you think “cool” even on the hottest days.

School’s out for summer!
Get into the garden and banish boredom
My dear fellow parents (and grandparents!): There’s nothing like the whirlwind of activities we cram into the last two weeks of the school year, right? I imagine your days—like mine—have been filled with planning end-of-year parties, attending talent shows, graduation ceremonies…the list goes on.
Take a deep breath. The chaos will subside in the next few weeks. And then—Summer break! Hooray!

Take repins into real life
Show of hands: Who’s spending lots of time on Pinterest? Good. I’m not the only one. Next question: Who’s spending lots of time making the things you’re pinning? Yeah. Me neither.
It’s highly unlikely I’ll bake the cakes and cookies I post. And there’s very little chance of me successfully completing any craft that involves a needle and thread.
But garden projects—that’s a different story. I can make these come to life! Who’s with me?

Mother’s Day fun facts
Commemorate the special woman in your life
Shopping for mom is on the top of my to-do list this week. (I believe a Double Knock Out Rose is on her wish list. With planting service. Courtesy of me.)To get us in the spirit of the event, I present these fun (and random) facts about Mother’s Day.

Can’t get enough of gardenias?
Celebrate! There’s a re-blooming variety just for you
Gardenias are tops in my mom’s book. Until recently, I wouldn’t count myself as a fan. This plant seemed like such a tease—offering up beautiful, fragrant, but fleeting, flowers. My tune has changed, though, since I discovered Jubilation™ Gardenia.
