Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It cooled down a bit here this week, so I was able to do a little more work in the gardens.

In the gardens…

This week, I finished planting almost all of the seedlings I grew indoors.

Since I had no more room and felt both emotionally and physically done planting seedlings, I gave the rest away to one of my besties.

Can’t wait to see them in her garden!

The Complete Guide to Roses Care

We’ve had quite a bit of rain here lately, so some of the plants are falling over.

So I spent some time staking and supporting plants that needed it.

As well as some of those seedlings I just planted.

I love using THESE for most of my plants.


But I also just stuck with the basics of THESE and THESE.

If you’re not sure whether to support your plants, do some research now to preventatively keep them in good shape as they bloom.

In addition to supporting plants, I pinched the zinnias and dahlias back.

This process will help form a bushier habit and produce more blooms.

Attic Renovation

In my home…

The attic renovation is coming along.

We added a folding table to put my computer on temporarily until my desks arrive.

Tori assembled my office chairs.

Oh, we really love these.

They are super comfy and look awesome!

And yes, I said desks and chairs because Tori is going to help me out with the blog.

I would love to add a pull-out sofa or futon for guests. But the one I wanted already sold out and is on backorder.

So either I wait or find something else.

  1. Stacy,
    Your posts this past week were so informative and I love how your office is coming along. Thanks again for the share.

  2. Stacy, your garden is so beautiful. Those dahlias! I’ve tried growing them here with no luck, but I think I can grow them at our mountain cabin. We aren’t there enough for me to tend to a full garden. What a fun office project too! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much Mary! I know the dahlias are really something! I just started growing them last year – I hope they do well this year! xo

  3. Your gardens are looking so beautiful Stacy! I’m just so happy we are growing cut flower gardens together this year. Can’t wait to see the office when it had the desk and chairs in it. Love that desk! Thank you for sharing my greenhouse blog post. Hope you had a great week.

    1. You are welcome! The furniture just arrived this week so I’m starting to set it up now. I can’t wait to share it! I love gardening with you! xoxoxo
