The Garden Glitterati

We are two friends, both born and raised in North Carolina, who love gardening. We met years ago on a hillside while planting columbine and other native wildflowers for the UNC-Charlotte Botanical Gardens.

One of us started singing "Jingle Bells" at the top of her lungs, even though it was mid-spring. The other stood and stared in silent disbelief...And then a true friendship took root.

Since that day we've swapped all kinds of horticultural advice, traveled to flower shows, frequented our fair share of garden centers and bonded over quite a few glasses of wine.

Now, we've decided to write a blog. We'll cover our favorite things: gardening, entertaining, traveling, cooking, crafts, fashion, libations, gracious living--basically, everything under the sun.

We each bring different experiences and ideas to the table, and together we think we make a pretty good team. We hope you'll enjoy reading our blog just as much as we hope we'll enjoy writing it. Let the adventure begin!
