For landscape lovers, gardeners, and St. Louisans alike!
For almost 8 years, I’ve loved using Pinterest to find inspiration and innovative ideas for almost every aspect of my life (currently, I have 47 boards). Where else could you find a three-ingredient recipe for chocolate mousse, an inspirational quote perfect for a Monday morning, and a DIY tutorial for cute new kitchen towels, all on one page? If you found your way to this blog post, you’re probably already familiar with Pinterest, have an interest in gardening or landscaping, and you might live in St. Louis, Missouri as well. If any of those are true about you, check out our Top 10 Pinterest accounts to follow!
