I visited the large garden center yesterday. I generally only visit at Christmas time when it is totally decked out for the season. It was very windy yesterday wo it was nice to photograph flowers that were sitting pretty.
There were some 3 feet tall and very decorator in color and finish. There was a variety of materials: pottery, plastic, glass, ceramic and wood.
I thought these were bright and colorful. Together as a group they are quite overwhelming but spread across a space they would likely do the trick. I thought the colors where quite retro.
This was a small angel in a cream color. It had a wash applied to highlight it's lovely features. It was maybe 4 inches tall so could easily be tucked into a corner of almost any space.
Great in the house or the garden.
I've just finished viewing a series of railroad promos done in the first half of the 20th century telling of their history in North America. It was very interesting.
I was surprised to see the amount of art and paintings available at the center. It's not fine art mostly but very nice pieces which would look good in a living as well as in a 3 season room.
This piece of art was huge, probably 4 feet square and very lovely. As you can see there is a reflection so some parts of it were a bit shiny. I love the texture in the petals and the monochromatic color scheme.
Of course, there was lots of plants for sale. The orchids were gorgeous, ranunculus in many colors as well as rhododendrons in very pretty colors.
I enjoyed my visit and will be back as the seed rack was full and I will want some herbs again this year on the balcony.
