The Gardening Store

I find plant stores fascinating. In high school, I worked for a florist during my junior year. I also worked at a plant nursery for a while. I currently work for a florist again.

I am namely interested in the colors and creativity. Bouquets, landscaping, centerpieces, succulents – it’s a kind of design and artwork that I find endlessly beautiful.

This week, S and I had to go to a gardening store to pick up some supplies for our garden.



We were immediately greeted by a pumpkin display, and I was instantly excited.

Look how cute they all are! And with the fall mums!
(S was not as impressed as I was. )

We went inside, and headed toward the seeds. I’ll admit, I stopped and stared at this display for a while:



So. Much. Color.

While S did the important decision-making, I wandered the shop and admired their lovely displays.

Do you ever just wish you had a talent? I think interior design and rustic garden-plant-succulent-flower-making-stuff should be some of mine. Currently, I have quiet interest and no clue what to do.

(Who doesn’t love fairy houses? They’re so little! I’ve considered adding to my bucket list the creation of a fairy city. But where to keep it…)



(I’m not sure why, but this little wooden shelf with its colored pots made me happy)



(More succulents! They’re so beautiful and strange-looking. I think they are the cute, fat babies of the plant world.)
