“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.” When individuals work together, they can double their strength and get more done as a team. They also reap the value of having worked in unison, thus creating harmony instead of discord. Working as one people begins with the efforts of each person, as they work with another person. And then....you make the cover of a magazine!! Congrats to the Millstone team for completing this project under a time crunch on those 110 degree days!! The Millstone team is my inspiration everyday!! #teamwork #notalwaysperfect #greatjob #twoarebetterthanone #teamworkmakesdreamwork @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

Back in stock this amazing Alocasia Zebrina!! Moist soil and regular misting of the leaves are two good to know tips caring for these. The benefit to you are clean air, boost healing and deter illness. Being “under the influence of plants” can increase memory retention up to 20%, according to a University of Michigan study. #day3 #joyinthejourney #alocasia #zebrina @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine

Yesterday’s houseplant shipment included this amazing Pencil Cactus 🌵A succulent (rather than a true cactus) will make a great patio addition most of the year but must be overwintered inside or treat as a houseplant year round. High light and low water, about every three weeks during the year and cut back to less water in the winter adding worm casting once a year. #bernesemountaindogs #pencilcactus #houseplantsofinstagram #bernesemountaindog #bernersofinstagram #succulents #succulentsofinstagram @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine #shopdog #shop901 #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

I was recently questioned by a friend why I spent so much time contemplating what to write about the photos I post...I was informed by her that people do not read whats written they just scroll the pictures. I have given that much thought as I have planned, researched and spent a lot of time on most everything you see and it dawned on me how rewarding of a process this has been. I have grown in my faith, patience and passion for the beauty around me. So to this post...HOPE is the passion for the possibility!! If you did read this, do you know of someone that is in need a little hope today!! #hope #hopequotes #randomactsofkindness #loveoneanother @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

Not often do I treat myself to beautiful art but when my friend @deannahamsleyartwork posted this I purchased right off her Instagram feed 💛 several days later she posted this interpretation: “The Gardeners” is the first of a series. I will be bringing her friends with me to Hope Market. They are all nature lovin strong female types with a soul full of Jesus and a heart for people and the things in the world around her. “ ...I will be reminded of Deanna’s vision when I admire her work and who’s we are. Thank you for bearing your soul with us!! You are a gift!! #localartist #901artist @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

Escargot begonia was the pic for today then decided to go in a different direction after reading @msrachelhollis morning post...Life doesn’t have to be that RUFF!!

Work to get better, work to improve, but never lose the specialness that makes you, you!” #girlwashyourface #granddog #bernedoodlesofinstagram @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @stewartthunt @msrachelhollis @harrathon #joyinthejourney #choosejoy #shopgermantown #shop901

Start your fall planting season by adding this statuesque Chinese Viburnum!! The flowers are the draw here. You will be rewarded with spectacular, softball-size blooms. Laden with blooms, a single specimen can add oomph to the border or be trained into a small accent tree. Not only does Chinese snowball viburnum make a stunning garden plant, but it’s worth its weight in gold as a cut flower!! #winwin #chineseviburnum #viburnum #pickme @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @cottagesgardens #choose901 #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

Thinking about those fall containers....Boxwoods make a great year round option. These evergreen and low maintenance shrubs will add winter interest and also transition well into spring and summer. Fall is the best time of the year to spruce up your garden with the temps cooling and more rain in the forecast it’s less stressful for plants and you 🌿 #boxwood #containergardening #joyinthejourney #choosejoy @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @cottagesgardens @thecottagejournal #fallplanting #fallgarden

“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and struggle to reach the light” and so it is with moss!! To get it to grow in your garden it likes full shade and moist soil. Harvested you too can bring indoors to enjoy its beauty all year long!! #mossmound #doughbowl #joyinthejourney #choosejoy #happytuesday @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @cottagesgardens @thecottagejournal

Elephants, in general, symbolize the qualities of wisdom, strength. Courage, patience and honor. Also...as most of you SEC fans are aware symbolizes something else!! So the story goes in 1930 at the end of the quarter during the Alabama-Mississippi game “the earth started to tremble, there was a different rumble that continued to grow. Some excited fan in the stands bellowed, “hold your horses, the elephants are coming.” And that stamped the elephant mascot.” So to this years college freshman (and all the others heading back to college) this is for you...may you too choose wisdom, strength, honor and courage @jesus.calderoni @frazier_wilson blessing to you for a great first year!! #joyinthejourney #choosejoy @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @thecottagejournal @cottagesgardens #elephant #succulents @succulove @succulentcity #rtr #finsup

“You clear the land, you break up the soil, and you plant, water, and nurture your flowers, but at that point, you do not have the liberty of walking away. Your work has not ended, in fact, it has just begun, because you have planted your flowers in impure soil and in a less-than-perfect environment . Weeds will immediately begin to grow, and if you don’t attend to them, they will soon dominate the turf and choke the vitality out of your beautiful flowers.” #newmorningmercies @paultrippquotes #joyinthejourney #choosejoy

That spot where plants will not live and is dark, I forget to water or we do not have any light...this adds beauty and life!! #workseverytime #mossmound #joyinthejourney #choosejoy @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @cottagesgardens @thecottagejournal #bethelight

As migration approaches, the hummingbird starts to pack on fat, which will fuel its journey. Your feeders need to stay fresh and free of mold and fermentation. Changing your feeder every two to three days should do the trick!! A biological rhythm runs automatically telling them it’s time to prepare for their journey, which can span hundreds or thousands of miles. You can expect extra swarms to visit a healthy feeder as they prepare to embark. #tookthiswithmyphone #hummingbirdsofinstagram #hummingbirdmigration #hummingbirdmigration2018 #joyinthejourney #choosejoy #wideeyedwonder @americanbirdconservancy @thehummingbirdphotographer #sunrise @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @cottagesgardens @birdsblooms

As fall fast approaches now is a good time to make a note of what worked well for Spring. Garden Journals can be a great source of reference for next year. If you have a hard time taking the time to write notes...snap photos and save for next year. Bring your pics and we can help you recreate for next year or go another route in areas where things didn’t work out. As we plan fall and yes...Christmas 🎄 at Millstone we are keeping all of you in mind to have the best season yet!! #joyinthejourney #choosejoy #gardenjournal
