It's not just flowers anymore

A trip to my local flower nursery truly takes me twice as long these days. It's no longer only about perennials and annuals... it about outdoor living. If you haven't been to your local nursery lately, I suggest you take a trip and you'll be pleasantly surprised to find a variety of accessories for decorating your outdoor space. Outdoor artwork, iron work, candle holders, lanterns and absolutely gorgeous outdoor pillows (in every colour!) are just a few things you'll find. Just stunning... so, yes it takes me twice as so long because there's just so many beautiful things to look at and it's not just flowers anymore. 

It's not all country looking anymore either... this display has a modern twist to it with silver, blue and black.

How about yellow?... I love the little yellow chicken in the center, it bounces up & down. :)

Which do you prefer... orange or pink?

Need a little R & R... perhaps this will help.

I love gardening for the abundance of colour and creating a pretty flower arrangement. Maybe it's because my mom always had pretty outdoor flowers while I was growing up... don't know, but whatever the case, I enjoy it and find it satisfying. 

Lastly, if you really don't want to do it yourself but love the idea of choosing your own colour combination, it's likely your local nursery will offer the service of planting your pot. Just round up all the flowers you wish, find your pot and they'll take care of the rest!! Easy as 1 - 2 - 3. Whichever route you choose, I hope you give it a try... enjoy!
