Have I mentioned that I LOVE garden week? Begun in 1927 to save trees planted at Monticello, every April, for two weeks people open their private homes and gardens through out the state. What a wonderful fundraiser and treat! You get to peak inside beautiful homes and gardens for a sneak peak at something beautiful. Even better, are the floral arrangements done by the local garden clubs.
I always try to make it to the local homes on tour. Over the years, I’ve discovered entire neighborhoods, homes, and gardens I never knew existed. I’ve gotten ideas for decorating my home and stolen suggestions for floral arrangements. One of my favorite arrangements was in a mud room and used hunter rain boots. It was incredible.
humm . . .
I love seeing creativity in action. Detail and the unexpected are always on display. How much fun finding the unexpected, like a pair of Hunter boots as a vase! Then there is the inspiration factor, it makes me want to spring clean, plant and prepare my porch for use.
