Inspiration








This is a new florist in my town.  Don't you love the little building?  The owner used to live here, with his mother.  I remember visiting as part of a Christmas tour, and the inside was filled with antiques.  After years of working for another florist, in another town, Richard has started his own business.  I love the way he has landscaped the outside of the little house, and took a few pictures to show you.

Filling up all the containers on my deck is number one on my to-do list.  I can't believe it is the beginning of July already.  I've got tons of work to do -- catch you later!

  2. I thought I was the only one who hadn't "finished" my deck. Difference is, I haven't even bought all the plants...oh well 2009 is just around the corner.

  7. Oh that place is so cute. Like a little dollhouse. For some reason though, I'm always sad when a private residence is turned into a place of business.

  16. I love all the flowers dripping from every corner and nook. Every time I go to the farmers market I fantasize about just backing up a truck and loading it all in. *sigh* I love flowers!

  19. I never did get everything planted that I had planned, so I probably won't try to now. Maybe next year. That's a sweet looking florist shop!
