Oh how I cant wait to see some colour in our garden, if only it would stop raining! Rain, rain go away, lets see something of that glowing yellow ball in the sky.Wet and damp conditions are demoralizing. Outdoor temperatures are all over the place. It feels like winter not pre-spring.
For a little inspiration I drove to Pikes Nursery, initially to buy bird seed to attract wild birds as they seem to like this particular mix. I am all for encouraging the wild life into our garden.
I digress, what a cheerful array of colour that inspired me to start thinking about planting more annuals, perennials and hardy shrubs.
Almost instantly I felt my mood lift.
Add a touch of colour to your garden with Mediterranean inspired pots and plaques. Fill garden tubs with pansies, daffodils, tulips, crocus and heather.
Looking for more inspiration. I found A Christmas Tree Store called And That, loads of home and garden accessories to suit all pockets, from garden lights, to furniture, cushions, lanterns, pots and plaques, very affordable.
Walmart also had a variety of spring and summer bulbs, adding to my collection on a weekly basis! Check out other Garden Centres and Stores such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, TJMaxx, Tuesday Morning, Marshalls and Home Goods
Brightly coloured weatherproof pots, this one has a built in water tray too.
Our Tulip tree is in bloom, although the blooms are short lived, the stunning pink tulip blooms are just beautiful.
We have a lot of work to do in our back garden this year, to create our own little Oasis. Can’t wait to get started again.
