Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Permaculture Spiral Garden

Until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of such a thing. Have you ever?
This is something which I think I should like to do, gathering the materials
will take time for me, but the benefit of this outweigh the thoughts. We have one at the Nature Center, that is where the idea came from. Though thought being that the plants which need the least amount of water drain to those who need more.. It looks more compact then the conventional rectangle or square garden, and I'm sure you could make it that way if you choose..the sky is the limit on how you design these. I think they are rather pretty and practical.
a few links for you to paruse...

If you done one of these, I do hope you'll stop and share your experience. I think these are very cool.

What an awesome idea! I just redid my front yard in April, and I might have used this technique had I known about it. Or if I had a brain... :)
