Urban Gardens posted about this very portable greenhouse on their site a few days ago and I thought it was so great I just had to post about it on my blog.

This amazing greenhouse was designed by Studio Besau-Marguerre in Hamburg in collaboration with Adrien Petrucci. It comes with a leather strap, which, aside from being fashionable, is also practical as you can move this small greenhouse inside or out as weather permits.

Need a new bag for the spring? Gift for a friend, signifigant other, mom? Head over to Transplantednorth’s blog where she posts about a bag she bought at Sakroots. The name of the bag is Sakroots Artist Circle Flower Power Pattern. You can get more information about where to buy it from Sakroots directly.

The best thing about the bag is Sakroots gives a portion of the sales of each bag to The Nature Conservancy‘s Plant A Billion Trees program.
