You all sure know how to make a girl feel good!! Thanks so much for taking the time to congratulate me on the new/old house. Y’all always come out in droves for good news (and even bad) and I sure appreciate the thoughts. I’m excited to share the journey!
While I’m relaxing at the beach this week, I’ll share a few of my outings that I haven’t had time to share yet. Enjoy!
Back at Boxwoods Gardens, the outdoor area and live plants are so inspiring for Spring as well. We loved seeing the inside of this beautiful shop, but outside is equally pretty. I’m sure it even gets better as Spring and Summer arrive. My friend, Maureen, and I were there on a drizzly day, but it was still pretty.
Lots of plants to choose from outdoors.
If you’re looking for unique pots and containers, there are plenty of those to choose from.
Love the color of this one.
A few bunnies are evident too and you know I love those.
Some unique pillows.
Getting ready for Easter.
Lots of live orchids in their greenhouse area too. Love these, but after killing one that cost $25 in Birmingham, I’m probably not going to try another one.
There is something about blooms in Spring that just uplifts the soul.
If you’re looking for dish gardens, they have plenty to choose from. Great for a gift idea!
Gorgeous and unique.
More orchids and aren’t they beautiful?
Ivy topiary with cute birds and nest.
Orchids and hydrangeas are a beautiful thing.
When pigs fly!
Pretty boxwood balls.
Now let’s go outdoors.
Pretty red berries
Birdhouses, I love these too.
Pretty plant upclose. Not sure what this is, but I love how textural it is.
Those beautiful hydrangeas.
Pretty vine arbor.
Oyster shell birdbath, how pretty is this?
This bunny made me smile, love him!
Red twiggy tree with drops of water.
Plenty of birdhouses.
Stargazer lilies, I love these too.
Hopefully next year, I’ll get outdoors and dig in the dirt again in my new house and I can’t wait for that either. There’s something calming and soothing about planting flowers and watching them grow.
Are you digging in the dirt yet? What are your favorite flowers to plant outside?
For me: Endless Summer hydrangeas, Limelight hydrangeas, Knock-out roses, Stargazer lilies, Lenton Roses
