On Monday this week I talked a little bit about my weekend shopping trip, preparing me for the Romantic Times convention coming up in just a few weeks.
Yesterday, the husband and I visited a local nursery to look at some plants. We planning a redesign on the flower bed in front of the house, and wanted to talk “a professional” about our proposed ideas.
Even though it was a little early and there wasn’t a lot of flowers outside yet, the bushes we were interested in were outside and we had a lovely conversation. Looked at and priced the plants we knew we wanted and looked at some different options for two specific areas we haven’t reached a mutually agreed upon decision yet.
One trouble area is the center focus of the flower bed. It is a space between the two large windows in front of the house. Because it’s the break between the windows, it’s not only a visual focal point, but it is the one spot that could support something a little larger.
The husband would like a larger bush or small tree, a relative of the weeping cherry is at the top of his list. I’m still vying for a sculpture, fountain or bird bath. We found a few that featured fairies that I would love to have.
I will keep you updated and post some pictures as this transformation happens.
Are you prepping your gardens for Spring?
