First Day of SPRING!

Since today is the first day of SPRING (and the fact that the weather makes me feel like I should be sitting on the sand with the waves crashing at my feet)- I decided what  better than to fill the sad looking planters in the front of the shoppe.  Aside from baking and making chocolates, my favorite thing in the whole WIDE world is to plant flowers.  I pulled up to the wholesale garden shoppe- as I do more than 5 times a weak- but this time in no rush at all.  I walked the whole store front to back 3 times- not because I was lost and didn’t know what I wanted, but simply because I wanted to inhale all the inspiration that surrounded me.  Wall to wall is covered with different kinds of flowers from around the globe.  I start visually planning parties and events in my head.  Today I picked simple.  It’s spring so I will change out a few things by summer but in the matter of minutes my planters were transformed.  Here’s what I picked:  Sorry for the photos as these were all taken with my cell phone.

 

and pansies:

now it was back to the shoppe and (i don’t even want to post this) but look how AWFUL the planters looked this winter: YIKES!

after 5 beautiful minutes:

I hope your day was just as sweet as mine!!

Love the new summer flowers. They are so bright, that alone will be so eye catching that people will be in to see what is inside. Love the sweets I had but when I get rid of this concussion (since Oct)you know you will see me. Keep up the good work Kerri, you do a great job on looks and taste, very talented. See you soon I hope
love Sherry

I’ve been following your site since first lured in by The Cookie Countess. You have an amazing talent for apparently many things. Love your page! Hope to someday visit your shoppe when my schedule permits. Continued success to you and yours. You well deserve it. P.S. The photog is phenomenal!
