What do Easter grass and sea oats have in common?

It's March and Easter is approaching so the first thing I think is growing grass, No, not that kind...grass for Easter baskets. I've done it for years thanks to my good friend, Kim.  I collected baskets (4), lined them with black plastic and organic potting soil and spread a thick layer of grass seed on top of the soil.  The only time-consuming part of this is the twice-daily watering. In a sunny window, you should start to see growth within 6 - 7 days. I love that!!!

Decide what you'll be added to your baskets and they're good to go!

The second part of your question, the sea oats, comes a bit later, after the baskets have been delivered to Vignette's retail space at Counting Sheep Antiques in Berlin. The sea oats are along the shore in South Carolina, where we spent 10 days, either on the road or the beach, or in antiques shops or restaurants.  It's difficult deciding how to spend your leisure days when its 75 degrees outside. Here are some images of that time...
