House & Garden was inspired by our love of natural life, of our gardens and the central place they play in our home-lives, our friendships and relationships. Jim and I were working one day, it was a beautiful spring day, and Jim said he'd started a song while thinking about the strawberry plants he has in his garden. His mother gave him the cuttings planted by his father, and though he passed on many years ago, his memory is kept alive in the garden. What a beautiful gift to reflect on your loved ones as you tend your flowers! We wrote the rest of the lyrics with specific flowers in mind and what they represent (love, faith, comfort).

Nell Robinson | Jim Nunally: House & Garden / Muruch Review
Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally's new album, House & Garden has such a cheesy cover photo, I almost didn't bother listening to it. I thought for sure I'd hate it. Boy was I wrong! It's a simple, heartfelt album inspired by the memory of Nunally's father, which is kept alive in the garden he planted. The album appropriately includes a card of wildflower seeds. READ MORE...
