If you're lucky enough to have some outdoor space, now's the time to start putting it to use. Or at least lay the groundwork. Once Memorial Day rolls around, you'll want that little outdoor escape, even if it's just a fire escape or front stoop. These five stores have great online catalogs to help you get started ... and you never even have to leave your living room.
I've had the pleasure of following Jenn's garden via Instagram for quite some time now. I was drawn in by the beautiful pictures of her space, but my love of the area and the gardening climate in Half Moon Bay, California (her home base) kept me coming back for more. I thought I would share her garden with the Apartment Therapy community, and Jenn was kind enough to send some photos my way for all of you — just in time for our Outdoor & Gardening month!
Tulip season is upon us, and depending on where you are, it generally lasts about two weeks. Usually it starts sometime in mid to late April and ends in early May. If you ask me, the season for these brightly colored harbingers of spring is entirely too short. But it doesn't need to be. Here's how to extend the color riot.

I'm a little late to the game of getting my spring seed orders in (if you hurry there is still time) and as usual I am trying to grow things that I either can't find in the grocery store or that I think will surprise and excite visitors to my kids' farmers market stand. James Wong is providing excellent inspiration in my hunt.
