Comments about Product: This quilt and throw are more beautiful than pictured. The quality from Plow and Hearth is above average. Wish they would make solid sheets to go with this. Will be ordering more from here.

A Bed of Roses!
Comments about Product: This was a "package" deal - two shams with a queen-size quilt. It almost instantly transformed my rather dull bedroom into a "bower of flowers."It was a great purchase.
Comments about Product: shipping was very slow.

Comments about Product: I bought a king size quilt for my queen size bed because I don't like to use bed skirts and a king size covers the bed perfectly. The quilt is very pretty. The colors are bright and cheerful. The weight of the quilt is perfect for spring and summer. At first I thought the shams were too big but I actually like the way they drape on the bed. This is a great buy...extremely well priced and lovely to look at.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
