The past few days we’ve had so much rain. I was happy about it because the perennials hadn’t blossomed yet and are now bursting out the ground. Being happy to finally have a sunny afternoon, I spent my lunch hour visiting the local nursery to browse for something to add to the flower bed. I came across the yard art section and took the time to admire the local artistry available. Too much to chose from at this point, but one thing for sure ” I’ll be back”.
The Frog Family was really cute for a whimsical garden theme
I continue to the plant section and came across these “easy to grow” items. Naturally, I wanted to take them all but I had to narrow down my purchase. I decided to bring one of each home with me.
I’m still pondering a decision about a fence for the backyard. I’ve been pricing some in Lowe’s and Home Depot but they’re costly, and if you’ve been a blog follower, you know I’m the queen of thrift. As I was leaving the nursery I looked across the parking lot and saw a pile of pallets.
I said to myself “Hmmmm, I wonder if a fence can be made with them”. So I googled fences made with pallets and found these inspiration photos
I called the nursery to inquire about them and was told they were FREE! I can take as many as I want. Needless to say, I headed back to begin my stock pile of pallet fencing. What a great deal ( for the queen of thrift). On my way home, I stopped again at another nursery to see if they had any sale items and saw this table of “50% off” plants and decided to bring these home with me.
These little darlings will join me when I get ready to make my succulet pots
As I was leaving, this big potted Agave arrangement caught my eye. I love it, especially because all the plants are succulents. I have a potted agave so I think I’ll make this arrangement. Having inspiration photos really make things easier 🙂
All in all …. I think this was a good day … now comes the planting fun. Stay tuned for the potting pictures… See ya!
