The Urns Have It
Are you looking for that special element to make your garden, deck or porch come together? This is the time to start shopping for your decorative pieces. One, it gets you in the mood to start thinking ‘gardens’ and ‘outdoors’ and two, you’ll get prime choice on all the great items waiting to be discovered in garden centers, second-hand stores and unique shops.
These decorative pieces make a statement about you. Sure, there is always room in your borders for bold, colorful flowers or the unusual specimen tree. You can test the latest and greatest perennials but you must apply the general rules: the right soil, sun/shade and water requirements. When you look for those special deco pieces, there are no rules. This can speak volumes about your garden personality. It lets you say, “Hey, this is me.”
Talk about leeway! You can find some funky, chunky pieces or something tasteful and classic or better yet, mix them all up. It’s all in what you want to do here. Break the rules!
Based on this theory, the inspirational thought for the day is by Katharine Hepburn. “If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.” And with gardening, it may be hard work but it should always be fun! Annie
